The Board of Directors of Rainbow Pride of West Virginia (RPWV) is pleased to offer one (1) $1,000.00 scholarship for undergraduate or trade school students within West Virginia’s LGBTQ community and their immediate family members.
Serving West Virginia's LGBTQ community through education has been part of our mission since our founding in 1996. As we plan educational programming and events that are relevant and topical to the LGBTQ community, we also recognize the importance of improving ones life through obtaining a post secondary education degree or trade shcool certification.
Awards are subject to the discretion of the RPWV board of directors. Selection will be based on outstanding performance in academics, extracurricular activities, general financial need, LGBTQ community service involvement and other activities that reflect commitment, potential, and purpose to one’s career objectives.
At this time we are only offering ONE (1) scholarship.
The deadline is September 16th 2019. Please download the application through the button link below. The form is a .doc file that can be edited as you complete the information.

The one selected awarded student will be contacted and announced on September 19, 2019. The $1,000.00 scholarship will be awarded at the September 22nd Big Gay Picnic at Coonskin Park in Charleston, WV.
