Scholarships for LGBT+ students 16-24 years – The Pinnacle Foundation

We exist to give young LGBT+ students the chance to achieve their full potential, to light the spark within them. For those who want to complete high school, or are ready to start TAFE or university we can help. Irrespective of the career path one aspires to we may be able to offer the financial support and resources one needs to kick-start their career path.

We know that some young LGBT+s can face a tough time coming out to their families, friends and schools, with some finding themselves without the money and support needed to keep up their studies. Our scholarships program can help with that, but equally as important, we can provide mentoring support from someone in the same professional field to guide you through your studies. Someone who is the same gender and sexuality as you and knows what it’s like to walk in your shoes.

Meet the team

Vanessa Vlajkovic

Hi! My name is Nessa and I’m 20 years old. I’m studying Journalism at Edith Cowan University, with a Public Relations minor. I am an avid reader, writer, traveller and cheerleader. I’m also a passionate advocate for the deafblind community, and for other types of disability. I’ve been on the committee of the Youth Disability Advocacy Network (YDAN) at YACWA for a few months, and through them have developed a desire to become a YEP volunteer, as I want to expand my horizons.
