      Hello All, Please pass this on to those who might be interested:

      Third Wave Foundation Scholarship Program is available to all full-
      time or part-time students age 30 and under who are enrolled in, or
      have been accepted to, an accredited university, college,
      vocational/technical school or community college.

      The primary criteria to qualify for a Third Wave scholarship
      is vigorous engagement in activist work and financial need.
      The Scholarship Committee prioritizes applicants who have limited
      access to financial resources and whose civic, community, or cultural
      work shows a commitment to social justice. Within our scholarship
      grantmaking, the Woodlake Fund provides scholarships for young women
      of color who prioritize social justice and the work done in the
      spirit of justice and equality over academic performance, and who
      integrate social justice into all areas of their lives.

      Students applying for grants should also be involved as activists,
      artists, or cultural workers working on issues such as racism,
      homophobia, sexism, or other forms of inequality. The amount of each
      scholarship is decided after careful review of the student's
      financial aid report.

      The number of scholarships awarded depends on the amount of each
      award. Scholarships range in amount from $500 and $5,000 each. Our
      deadlines are April 1 and October 1.
