The Point Foundation, the country's largest scholarship and mentoring organization for LGBT college students, is accepting applications for the 2010-2011 academic year, but the deadline is fast approaching.
The Los Angeles-based organization will accept applications until Friday. The Point Foundation received 2,463 applications for the 2009-2010 academic year but is hoping to top that number for 2010-2011.
The average Point scholar receives between $25,000 and $33,000 in financial support -- the group has given away over $4.5 million since it was established in 2001. Many Point scholars have been cut off financially from their biological families.
