CREAM CITY FOUNDATION LAUNCHES FIRST EVER SCHOLARSHIP FUND WITH PARTNERS BMO HARRIS BANK AND WHYTE HIRSCHBOECK DUDEK S.C

Milwaukee, WI – May 11, 2016 – Cream City Foundation Board of Directors are pleased to announce that the Foundation will award $12,500 in scholarships to  lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer + (LGBTQ+) and allied students for the 2016 -2017 academic year. Cream City Foundation, in partnership with BMO Harris Bank and Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C. (WHD), officially launched the post-secondary educational scholarship program to develop leaders in the LGBTQ+ community of Southeastern Wisconsin.

The online application for five, $2,500 scholarships is now open through June 15, 2016 at www. CreamCityFoundation.org. No late applications are accepted. Award selection will be announced between July – August 2016. The scholarship program recognizes and supports LGBTQ+ and allied student leaders in Southeastern Wisconsin. Scholarships can be used for any post-secondary education at the undergraduate, graduate, professional, or post-graduate level.

“We are very excited about launching the LGBTQ+ Scholarship Fund and Program,” said Peter J. Holbrook, Cream City Foundation President & CEO. He went on to say, “Building the capacity of our LGBTQ+ community is important to addressing the long-term economic and health disparities among LGBTQ+ people in Southeastern Wisconsin. It is all about finding ways to support access and opportunity to post-secondary education.”

Paul Milakovich, Cream City Foundation Board Chair added, “Many LGBTQ+ individuals seeking post-secondary education have been stigmatized or isolated because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. They often lack critical family, financial and community support. An underlining goal of our scholarship program is to address these issues.”

Cream City Foundation assembled a Scholarship Advisory Committee comprised of Cream City Foundation Board of Directors and local professionals, combining LGBTQ+ members and allies to form a comprehensive and diverse group to establish the scholarship criteria and process.  For full criteria and online application, visit CreamCityFoundation.org.
