In honor of Stan Samuelson’s life and work, Cape Cod PRIDE has created the Stan Samuelson Scholarship Fund to support qualifying high school seniors of the Cape and islands.

Mr. Samuelson died from COVID-19 on April 21, 2020. The Mashpee resident was a longtime ally of the LGBTQ community. He retired from teaching in 2014. From 2017 to 2020, he served as Cape Cod PRIDE’s liaison to the Cape’s Gay Straight Alliances.

Applications are now being accepted for two $2,000 scholarships. Students with a passion for promoting LGBTQ equality through community service should complete and forward the application no later than April 1. Contact Marlene at or go to to download the application.
