LGBTQIA+ written on knuckles

There is a scholarship (or many scholarships) out there for everyone. Every student has some skill, interest, experience, or characteristic that may make them an attractive candidate for one scholarship or another. And while we often refer to scholarships as “free money,” scholarships don’t actually come for free. It takes work to thoughtfully consider your strengths and research the scholarships that might be most appropriate for you. While the effort that goes into finding and winning scholarships may be akin to a part-time job, we at College Coach want to make your job a little easier. This on-going scholarship series highlights a new scholarship each week. Check out the below, along with the other posts in the series, and you may discover a funding resource that will make covering that college bill a little (or a lot!) easier.

The New York Ramblers, the first openly gay soccer club, is proud to offer a scholarship opportunity to student athletes who identify as LGBTQ or those who are demonstrated supporters of the LGBTQ community. Successful applicants will have a mixture of financial need and impressive activities both on and off the field or court.
