Inspired by his own coming-out story at the age of 13, GT’s Living Foods founder and L.A. native (the “King of Kombucha”) GT Dave has announced the SYNERGY Scholarship. Created in June 2021 in honor of Pride Month, the scholarship is now open to current California-based high school seniors who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community.
The Scholarship is designed to empower educational opportunities within this community while encouraging aspiring businesspeople to achieve their dreams. The Synergy Scholarship will fund a $250,000 commitment to help winners pay for higher education over the next five years.
Through strength and perseverance, GT Dave says he channeled his creativity, unique point of view and identity into the company that today holds leading rank as the number one kombucha brand in the world. It’s because of his experience that he is launching this scholarship so that he can give back to members of the LGBTQ+ community and encourage their entrepreneurial passions.
