The guide was produced in part by Eugene Patron and Dr. Deb Cohan, two experts in the field of building awareness and support of the LGBTQ community. A few highlights from the guide are:
– Common hardships faced by LGBTQ college students and how to deal with them
– Scholarships available for LGBTQ students
– Interviews with our two experts, and an array of external support resources
Go Grad has recently updated its guide to financial and and scholarships for the LGBTQ student community. The scholarships and financial opportunities provided by this guide should be very helpful for your current and prospective students when making financial decisions about college.
