Public service

Despite increased visibility and support in recent years, the LGBTQIA+ community continues to face discrimination both in and out of the workplace.

In the last year alone, more than a third of LGBTQIA+ individuals have experienced discrimination, often taking a psychological toll and leading to mental health struggles. LGBTQIA+ people face additional obstacles such as a lack of access to healthcare, workplace discrimination, and conflicts with unsupportive family members.

This scholarship aims to support LGBTQIA+ students who are pursuing careers in public service so they have the encouragement necessary to achieve their dreams.

Any LGBTQIA+ high school senior who has volunteering experience and is interested in public service may apply for this scholarship.

To apply, tell us who you are, how you give back to your community, what your major is going to be, and how you plan to change the world.
