Grand Rapids Trans Foundation Academic Scholarship

This scholarship fund is to help transgender students with education-related expenses while pursuing a degree or certificate from an accredited college, university, or technical / vocational program with a satellite campus or permanent presence in Kent County, MI.

This award is open to people of any age who identify as transgender (including non-binary, two-spirit, third gender, transsexual, and/or any other non-cis gender identity) and who demonstrate financial need. No GPA requirement. Students of color and students with disabilities encouraged to apply.

Student privacy is respected. We will not share any identifying information without the applicant’s written permission. Upon request, we can provide applicants with a generic Financial Release form if there is any concern that the applicant’s school will react poorly to a trans status disclosure.
