Rainbow Youth Leadership Bursary

NOW OPEN! ACCEPTING NOMINATIONS FROM MARCH 5 - MAY 31, 2019 @ 2 p.m.

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 LGBT2Q+ community but created to recognize leadership and community contribution.

Funded by the Rainbow Youth Bursary Fund, each recipient receives $500 towards their post-secondary education.
