2016 Loud Foundation Pride Youth Scholarships

The LOUD Foundation awarded scholarships to a record 10 students for their community leadership, June 8, 2016, the highest number in the LGBTQ2+ business association’s seven-year history of awarding the scholarships.

Vancouver Pride Society President Alan Jernigan presented the inaugural Pride Youth Scholarships during the LOUD Gala in early June. Three outstanding individuals each received a $2000 grant funded by the VPS. The society is incredibly proud of this year’s recipients and we thank the LOUD Foundation selection committee. We see a bright future ahead for Madeline Goodman – Blake Hawkins and Jotika Samant.
