* 25 Great Scholarships for Transgender Students

Finding good college scholarships for transgender students is considerably easier now than in the past. The Williams Institute reports that there are over 700,000 transgender individuals currently living in the United States who have taken some steps to transition from one gender to another. Our society is slowly becoming more accepting of transgender people, thanks in part to celebrities like Chaz Bono, Laverne Cox, Alexis Arquette, and most recently Caitlyn Jenner.

However, there are still significant obstacles placed in the pathway of transgender students wishing to attend higher education. In fact, only 10% of American colleges have a trans-inclusive statement against discrimination. There’s some good news though because scholarship and grant funding is becoming abundant to minimize the stress of tuition costs. Remove the barriers to reaching your full academic potential by checking out these 25 scholarships accepting of transgender students.
