Garcia joined Point Foundation as the Scholar & Alumni Program Director, after over 18 years experience in recruitment and college advising. Prior to joining Point, Vincent was Associate Director of Admissions at California Lutheran University, where he led the Multi-Cultural Recruitment Team and developed freshman recruitment travel strategies. "Over five thousand LGBTQ individuals begin the application for receiving the Point scholarships every year, and over two-thousand complete and submit it," Vince says. "Very strong academic performance is one characteristic that Point seeks in all its applicants and subsequent scholars. Additionally, proven leadership skills and the desire to make a difference in the world are highly valued."
According to Point's recent statistics, 39% of the applicants identify as gay, 16% identify as lesbian, 19% as queer, 12% as bisexual and only 4% are transgender and gender nonconforming applicants who identify as straight. "Each person who applies for a Point Scholarship is evaluated on the totality of his or her situation," says Vince. "Financial need, academic achievement, personal merit, leadership, involvement in the LGBTQ community, professional experiences, personal and future goals, and marginalization (and their response to those obstacles) are all taken into consideration."
Garcia came out as a gay man when he was 26 years old, and as a queer person when he started working at Point just after he turned 40. "The process of coming out was very difficult since the approval of others was tremendously important to me," he says.

Join Vince Garcia, and many other confirmed LGBTQ leaders at 40 Years of Pride: Israel's first-ever Global LGBTQ Leadership Conference.
