Project: Outstanding LGBT Graduates

What it is:The Advocate is currently accepting nominations
for outstanding LGBT graduates who are creating
postgraduate projects and organizations designed to
benefit LGBT people.

Who we'll select: The magazine is looking for
young people who are using new ways of thinking about LGBT
issues to create innovative approaches to activism
and/or philanthropy. They can be starting an
organization, running for office, launching an awareness
campaign, or something completely different.

What we'll do with it:The Advocate’s Pride issue will present the
finalists and their projects. The feature will become an
annual event in our Pride issue.

How to Apply: Anyone can nominate a student who
is about to graduate high school, college, or
graduate/professional school in spring 2008. You are
also welcome to nominate yourself. The application
must include answers to the following questions as well as
any other supporting data:

  • The student’s name, school, and area of
    study.
  • What is the project? (Be specific! What will
    you do? Who does it help? Why is it important?
    How is it innovative?)
  • How will the project make an impact on
    gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and/or transgenders?
  • What is the time frame for getting this project
    up and running?
  • How will the student’s project be
    funded?

When you've
rounded up all that information, send it to [email protected],
where you may also send any questions or comments.
Please put "Graduates" in the subject line.
