PrideRisingStarScholarshipLogoThe Rising Star Scholarship was founded in 2016 through a generous donation from a long-time volunteer.  The name “Rising Star” is a tribute to the long-running star themes of Milwaukee Pride brand logos.  Since 2003, the stars of the PrideFest logos have symbolized LGBTQ community pioneers who blazed a trail towards equality.

Additional opportunities, including unpaid internships for credit, are also available.  Contact with questions.

Milwaukee Pride, Inc. is proud to have Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design among its Proud Partners.  MIAD is Wisconsin’s only four-year, private, not-for-profit college of visual art and design. Together with MIAD, we will help individuals discover and realize their creative potential to live proud.
