The Models of Excellence scholarship program began in 1994 as a single award named in memory of Peter Kaufman, the son of Alvin and Irene Kaufman. As time passed, more commemorations were made, and the name was changed to the Models of Excellence Scholarship competition.
Friends of Project 10 Inc. awards $1,000, $2,000 and $3,000 scholarships to senior high school students from Southern California public, private and parochial schools who have advanced the civil rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) population. Graduating students must be going onto higher education.
