Send an LGBTQ Student Abroad through "Rainbow Giving Day" via The Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) & the NAFSA Rainbow SIG

Join the Fund for Education Abroad (FEA) on November 3rd "National Giving Day" in supporting the NAFSA Rainbow SIG Scholarship in providing a scholarship to a LGBTQ student to study abroad during the 2014-2015 academic year. 

The Rainbow Scholarship is awarded to a deserving LGBTQ undergraduate currently enrolled at a US university of college to study abroad on the program of their choice. The FEA administers the scholarship and works in conjunction with the Rainbow SIG to raise awareness and funds for the scholarship.
Goal: $5,000 (up to $2,500 raised, with $2,500 match).  All donations made will be matched, up to $2500, by the generous support of NEA® Member Benefits.

**Please make note that this event takes place in PST, not EST. For your donation to qualify for matching, it must be made between 12:01 am PST and 11:59 pm PST.
