About the Partnership
About GayDatingSites.net
The Gay Dating Sites.net - Speak Out Against Prejudice Scholarship was created and funded by Gay Dating Sites.net and administered by Education Aid, Inc. in order to reward one student’s hard work and/or future potential toward putting a stop to the prejudice that is often inflicted upon the GLBT community. The purpose of this scholarship is to give said student the financial resources to be able to reach their educational goals, and therefore be better able to aid in the implementation of equality towards the people in this community.

About EducationAid.org
It is the mission of Education Aid to change the lives of students around the country by providing them with the financial support they need to complete their education. This is done through the Support a Student Scholarship Program. Participants of this Program will have payments made on their behalf for non-tuition related expenses that are not being covered by their current financial aid amounts. Many economically disadvantaged students do not receive enough financial support to pay for such expenses and ultimately end up dropping out of school. This Program was created to identify these students and provide them with the financial support necessary to enable them to complete their degrees.
