Founded by Phillip McGuire in 1996, The Iris Phoenix Scholarship was established to provide scholarships for individuals who self-identify as LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Queer), or as children of LGBTQ parents. The scholarship continues to award scholarships each year, now administered by The Inclusive Life Center, an IRS 501c3 Charitable Organization.
