Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) students often have compelling and inspiring stories of overcoming incredible obstacles and hardships in pursuit of their goals for education. Many have experienced rejection by their families including being cut off from all financial support, and some even forced to leave home.
Last week Zebra Coalition launched the new Jefferson R. Voss Education Fund to support LGBTQ students in the Central Florida area to achieve their full academic and leadership potential. By identifying and supporting LGBTQ scholars, The Zebra Coalition hopes to break down barriers to education experienced by many LGBTQ students.
