HarborLAB will host annual Pride Paddles to help students from New York City's LGBTQ+ community pay for their academic careers and link up with mentors, job prospects, and more through the National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals (NOGLSTP). Participation in the 2019 Pride Paddle is FREE. We hope you're inspired to give to this scholarship fund, either here or in person at the Pride Paddle by bringing a check made out to NOGLSTP with "HarborLAB Pride Paddle" in the memo line.
The Pride Paddle will take place on Friday, June 28 from 6PM to 9PM at Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, Queens in NYC! More here:
NOGLSTP established the Out to Innovate Scholarship for LGBTQ+ Students in STEM in 2010. These scholarships are intended for LGBTQ+ undergraduate and graduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering,or mathematics (STEM) programs. The scholarships are designed to promote academic excellence and increased visibility of talented LGBTQ+ students in STEM careers.While the majority of our scholarship fund is supported by grants from private foundations (currently Motorola Solutions Foundation, and previously Battelle Memorial Institute), NOGLSTP is growing the fund through grassroots efforts to help more students. Every donation, large or small, furthers NOGLSTP's campaign to encourage and support LGBTQ+ students to pursue STEM careers.
