The Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant, launched by Milo Yiannopoulos and funded by Milo and private donors to provide college funding assistance to white males, is pleased to announce that 10 applicants have been selected to receive pilot project grants of $2,500 each.

The Privilege Grant awards are issued by the Privilege Grant Foundation, a Delaware not-for-profit corporation (tax-exempt status pending IRS approval) founded by Milo Yiannopoulos.

Payment of Privilege Grant awards will be made directly to the recipient’s school. This process will be completed during the summer of 2017 to be applied to the fall term.

Ms. Janet Bloomfield, Selection Committee Chair, made the final selections, along with managing the application and selection process. Milo Yiannopoulos will be contacting grant recipients personally within the next 24 hrs.

A second round of grants will be made available later in 2017. Please watch for upcoming releases including timelines and the application process.
