The Stonewall Foundation of Greater Sacramento is expanding opportunities for LGBTQ leadership development at Sacramento State University. This year for the first time our Laurie McBride Scholarship is open to receive applications from enrolled juniors, seniors or graduate students. Established in 2017, the McBride Scholarship seeks to assists students committed to political, social and economic rights of LGBTQ individuals, as well as achieving academic success. As our 2018 McBride Scholar explains,
“I believe that our voices are needed everywhere…..that we ourselves need to be at the table too, and that is what I try to live myself, to try to be at the table and further the cause of getting as many other LGBTQ people as possible to the table too.“
Committed to our goal -”to advance equal rights for all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity,” the McBride Scholarship was created by the Stonewall Foundation to cultivate leaders who, like McBride, understand that fighting for equality requires consensus building, commitment and resolve. The Stonewall Foundation is committed to empowering and educating LGBTQ youth to become the new leaders that will lead us in the continued struggle for basic rights, liberties and protections of the LGBT community.
