It is that time of year again… time to apply for a PFLAG Tucson/Alliance Fund Scholarship! This project is supported in part by funds from the LGBT–Straight Alliance Fund, a fund held at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona. We anticipate awarding several $1,000 joint scholarships to LGBT persons or a straight ally to attend an institution of higher education. These scholarships were founded in memory of Gene More, beloved past president of PFLAG Tucson, and Mark and Art Woodland, son and husband of long-time PFLAG member Elaine Woodland. This year we will also offer scholarships in honor of Norman “Mick” Meader, our PFLAG secretary who passed away last year.
Applicants can be either a graduating high school senior, undergraduate student, or graduate student and a resident of the Tucson Metropolitan area attending any school. The application deadline is March 31, 2018.

A special celebration for the winners of the 2017 PFLAG Tucson Scholarship Program took place at our regularly scheduled meeting, Wednesday, May 3, 2017, from 7-8:30pm.
Eight deserving recipients were awarded $1,000 scholarships towards their higher education in Fall 2017. Six recipients were in attendance at the May 3rd meeting, many with families and significant others joining them. The two winners who were unable to attend both sent letters of gratitude for the love and support they continue to receive, adding that once they have completed their studies out-of-area, they plan to return to Tucson.
All the highly deserving recipients expressed a desire to work in fields that are relative to the LGBTQ community, and their hope is to inspire the next generation of LGBTQ students to boldly move forward with confidence in their personal endeavors.
Being this was a regularly scheduled meeting night, around 8:30 our PFLAG support portion took place in a quiet corner of the room while those who wished to remain for the celebration enjoyed time together.
It was a memorable evening with much joy and much support for all.
