The 7th annual Tracie Jada O’Brien Transgender Student Scholarship Fund will be awarding their 100th recipient this year at the Transgender Day of Empowerment event. This scholarship is open to students from, or residing in, San Diego County that identify as transgender, are living outside of the gender binary and/or are in the process of transitioning their gender. This scholarship fund will grant monetary scholarships every year, as funds permit, to students that will be starting or continuing their education at a 2-year college, 4-year college, technical school, grad school, or vocational training program. 

Applications for the Tracie Jada O’Brien Transgender Student Scholarship Fund are open until Sunday, March 14, 2021. Click here to apply.  If you are interested in contributing to trans excellence and would like to support a San Diego scholar, please click here to donate. 100% of donations to the scholarship fund are given directly to local transgender students seeking higher education. As always, 100% of funds raised will go directly to the scholarship awards and your donation is tax deductible.
