Application - Part 2
Please send the following information:
Include with the completed application form your answers to
the following questions. These answers should be typed (maximum of 5
pages), or recorded on audio or videotape (maximum of 30 minutes).
- How will you finance your next year of post-secondary
education? If already in a post-secondary program, how have you
financed the current year? (Student loans, grants, scholarships, help
from parents, part-time/full-time job, savings, etc.)
- What jobs have you held? Or what community volunteer work
performed? And what have you gained from these experiences?
- What achievements or accomplishments -- academic, personal,
community, or elsewhere -- have made you especially proud? Explain.
Examples include volunteer work for HIV/AIDS, cancer or other health
care organizations; participation in groups that support transgender
rights, participation in local transgender organizations; or
participation in allied organizations that otherwise support the
transgender communities, such as Parents and Friends of Lesbians and
Gays (PFLAG). The strength of the applicant's commitment to bettering
transgender communities is one of the criteria established by the
Scholarship and Education Legacy Fund however, the scholarships will be
regardless of age race, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, or
group protected by non-discrimination laws.
- How has being identified as transgender affected your life?
- What would you like to be doing -- in terms
of work, community service, and personal life -- ten years from now?
How do you plan to work toward those goals in the next ten years? At
this time we are awarding grants only to individuals pursuing a career
in the helping and caring professions. Include in the narrative where
your interest in the helping and caring professions began and your
background in those professions (if any), any significant obstacles
you have overcome or expect to encounter (and any special
circumstances), and an estimated time line for major career milestones
you have established for yourself.
- Is there anything else you want to tell us about yourself
-- educational and personal goals, activism, and plans?
To help us in distributing next years award applications,
please tell us:
- Where you heard about these awards?
- How you obtained your copy of this application form?
(Your answers to these two
questions are not considered in choosing award recipients.)
