Better Brothers LA Book Scholarship

Having tuition paid is challenge enough for any student, but not having all the right materials on the first day of class hinders many students from starting a successful educational journey. Better Brothers LA assists Black LGBTQ youth with avoiding this hindrance by offering Book Scholarships. The scholarships support youth who have been admitted to or are attending an accredited degree, licensing, or vocational program. Scholarship funds are awarded to assist with purchasing textbooks and other study materials. The scholarships range from $500.00 to $1,500.00, and will be presented to recipients during the annual Truth Awards.
This year’s scholarships will be awarded on Saturday, February 24, 2018, during the Truth Award Ceremony. Scholarships are limited to Black LGBTQ youth who are residents of Los Angeles County.  Students may be attending accredited educational programs anywhere in the country. The deadline to apply and submit supporting materials for the Better Brothers LA Book Scholarship is Friday, January 19, 2018, by 5:00pm PST.
