TransGender Michigan is in the process of creating a scholarship fund for college and university students in Michigan who are actively working to counter transgender oppression, and we need your help! Please give what you can to ensure a worthy student can receive a helping hand. All contributions are tax-deductible and will help make a difference for a college/university student in Michigan.
TransGender Michigan's T.J. Jourian Scholarship is named after its first recipient, an activist who truly inspires us and embodies TransGender Michigan’s goal of combating and educating about the impact and interactions of oppression in all of its forms. T.J. is a MA candidate in the Student Affairs Administration program with the College of Education at Michigan State University. He plans on using his degree to help make higher education institutions more accessible, safer, more welcoming, and developmentally more satisfying places for students of all sexual orientations, gender identities and racial/ethnic/national backgrounds. T.J. Jourian was recently profiled in the new Sundance docu-series TransGeneration.
