We’ve provided
over $1.8 million in scholarships
since our founding.


Out for Education was founded by PFLAG-Houston and Hatch Youth.

While we’ve been a separate organization since 1999, we’ve retained strong ties with both organizations. PFLAG-Houston still provides funding for a scholarship. Many students from Hatch Youth, which is now part of the Montrose Center, are recipients of our scholarships.

Like PFLAG and Hatch Youth, we are dedicated to improving the lives of young LGBTQIA+ individuals.
