Amelia Michelle Sanford was an LGBTQIA+ student-athlete who believed in supporting her community. 

Having dealt with discrimination herself in high school and bridging into college, Amelia wanted to uplift others who needed support in a socially volatile climate. In today’s society, many student-athletes with LGBTQIA+ identities face barriers in their sport and need to be encouraged to stick with their passions and overcome their obstacles. 

This scholarship seeks to support LGBTQIA+ student-athletes to assist them in the pursuit of higher education. 

Any LGBTQIA+ high school senior who plays a sport may apply for this scholarship. 

To apply, submit a short video or an essay telling what are some of your struggles as a LGBTQIA+ student and what are you hoping to accomplish?
