As reported by Breitbart, applications for the Privilege Grant opened in January.
A press release put out by the Grant at that time read, “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 applications for its pilot program are now being accepted to receive Grants of $2,500.”
“The application period will close on February 14th, 2017, and recipients will be announced on March 31st, 2017. Grant payments will be made directly to the recipient’s college or university immediately pending IRS approval.”
The release also summarized the purpose of the Privilege Grant.
“The Privilege Grant was founded based on the idea that white males deserve as much assistance in achieving a college education as minorities do,” it reads.
“White males are continually on the losing end of college demographics yet until now have not had a resource to help them reach the necessary funding level for higher education.”
The project was ultimately funded by MILO himself and private donors.
