Friends of Project 10 Inc. was created in 1986 to provide funding for programs and projects to LGBTQ students. The Models of Excellence scholarship competition is one such program. In considering scholarship recipients, the committee looks for senior high school students, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, who have demonstrated a commitment to advancing LGBT civil rights and promoting social justice.
Students who are graduating from Southern California senior high schools are eligible to apply. Awards of $1,000, $2,000 and $3,000 are made to qualifying student scholars.
Applications are due no later than Saturday, May 5, 2018. Recipients of the scholarship are asked to attend the Scholarship Ceremony in the Los Angeles area on Saturday June 23, 2018.
