The Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce and Herzing University-Brookfield today announced a scholarship for LGBT individuals working in the healthcare industry.

Pride in Healthcare scholarship applications are now being accepted by the LGBT Chamber of Commerce and must be submitted online at by August 2, 2019.

Applications include short essay questions and require a letter of recommendation from the applicant’s current employer.

“Herzing University is committed to helping LGBT students get the training and education they need to move ahead in their careers, as well as to helping build the most diverse and inclusive healthcare industry we can,” said Jarvis Racine, Campus President at Herzing University-Brookfield. “We hope many members of the LGBT community working at these outstanding institutions take advantage of this opportunity.”

In addition to receiving the scholarship, recipients will be asked to volunteer five hours per month to support the Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce and its work to build a strong, diverse business community.
