Trans Surgery Grant Application

In 2012, Dr Rizi established an annual transgender surgery grant to pay for gender confirming surgery for trans and non binary individuals who need surgery as part of their transition but can’t afford to pay for it. Not every transgender person requires surgery but it is a huge burden when one does need it to feel complete and is held back due to financial and/or insurance constraints. The grant is personally funded  by Dr Rizi.

To apply, please write a paragraph or two about your transition story and why you need this grant.
