CHICAGO, June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fastweb (www.fastweb.com), the leading website for scholarship and financial aid information and a member of the Monster network, commemorates the history of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) advocacy and the diversity of the LGBT community during LGBT Pride Month.
The LGBT community and its supporters hold events in June to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969. Historians consider this date to be the initiation of the LGBT movement. As such, the impact that LGBT individuals have had on history is celebrated throughout the month of June.
Fastweb works to support all students seeking opportunities to help fund their education. The site's latest resource, LGBTQ Community Scholarships and Internships, highlights a collection of new scholarships, fellowships and internships for LGBT students in several academic areas. Additional opportunities are included for students with community service involvement and for students interested in advancing LGBT rights. Fastweb's scholarship directory of LGBTQ scholarship opportunities is another strong resource students can utilize while looking for ways to pay for school.
