The Valencia College Faculty & Staff Giving Campaign team is offering a scholarship honoring the victims of the shooting at the gay nightclub Pulse.

The Pulse Memorial Scholarship will be offered to students, mainly in the LGBTQ and Hispanic communities, who have been impacted by the Pulse shooting and who continue to support and promote diversity in the community and social justice for all people.

So far, the committee has raised about $15,000, but will need $25,000 in order to endow the scholarship to Valencia students, which will guarantee the money raised remains untouched.

In the meantime, a GoFundMe page has been launched to raise the rest of the funds.
