The Rita Cisneros Memorial Scholarship Fund

This memorial scholarship honors the legacy and work of Rita Cisneros. Rita was an advocate from the Central Region of PA.  Rita had a passion and joy for advocating not only for the LGBTQI community and people of color, but for anyone suffering discrimination. Her warm and genuine presence could bring a room full of diverse people together in minutes.  She consistently celebrated the beauty of diversity in her life and shared it with others making a difference in many PA communities.
