The Rainbow Youth Leadership Bursary honours an area high school student for accomplishments and contributions the nominee has made to the community; whether at home, school, religious institution, athletic or academic team, or another social group. Specifically, the nominee's contributions must include leadership that has supported tolerance and acceptance of London and the surrounding area’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual and two-spirited people, their supporters, or any community group represented under the diverse Rainbow banner.
The opportunity is not exclusive to the LGBT+ community but created to recognize leadership and community contribution.
The Rainbow Youth Leadership Bursary is funded by the Rainbow Youth Bursary Fund.
The Nominee must:
Consideration will be given to academic performance and personal or financial hardship.
Award: The recipient will receive a certificate accompanied by a bursary to a Canadian post-secondary institution for their education.
Selection Process: The Awards Committee, appointed by the Pride London Festival Organization, will assess each nomination and select a recipient.
Presentation: Will take place as part of the annual Pride London Festival.
