Ways to help

Mentoring

Each Point Scholar is paired with a caring mentor who is committed to advancing our students’ academic, professional and professional growth. Mentors provide career and professional development advice to scholars, including the pursuit of graduate studies and job opportunities after graduation. Mentors also advise their mentee about the design and execution of an annual community service project required of each Point Scholar.

Application Reader

Application Readers assist Point by reviewing and scoring the scholarship applications that are submitted each winter. Preferably, readers have a background in education, admissions, scholarships, counseling, hiring, or human resources. It is also very important that readers have a strong understanding of the issues affecting the LGBTQ community. Point provides each reader with virtual training and comprehensive oversight of our systems as well as our scoring process, which allows each reader to work at their own pace from home.
