We would like to congratulate all of the youth who received scholarships as part of our annual Models of Excellence Scholarship Competition.

The Models of Excellence Scholarship ceremony was held on Saturday, June 24th, 2017 and was attended by the Friends of Project 10 Inc. team, City of West Hollywood Representatives, several Scholarship Donors, members of the Project 10 Millennium Trustees and community leaders.

Our Models of Excellence Scholarship program awards scholarships to Southern California youth who have demonstrated a commitment to the advancement of civil rights in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities.

“Fun & Frivolity 2017” was the most successful fundraiser in the history of our organization! People enjoyed the wonderful entertainment and the “fixins” by Chef Ivory. Scholarship recipient, Emma Rumpf-Snavely, updated us with her college activities and she shared how the Models of Excellence scholarship benefits students who are working to advocate for LGBT civil rights.n.

Friends of Project 10 Inc. is proud to announce that a number of media outlets and LGBT nonprofits have recognized the work of Dr. Virginia Uribe, who founded the Project 10 program for the Los Angeles Unified School District in 1984, and later, Friends of Project 10 Inc. in 1986.

It was a time when LGBT students were considered "throwaway students," and they were treated as objects of hate and bigotry by not only their peers, but by the educational institutions that were there to serve them.

The Project 10 program and Friends of Project 10 Inc. were the first of their type in the world to address the issues of institutionalized homophobia in education, and to provide support and outreach to this very underserved student population.

We thank the various organizations for their recognition.
