Hampton Roads Unity is a local drag pageant with the sole purpose of unifying the LGBTQIA+ community.

In doing so, Hampton Roads Unity promotes inter-community activities and understanding, bolstering support and acceptance of LGBTQIA+ individuals while giving back to the community and creating positive change in the world.

This scholarship, inspired by the heart of our late friend Craig Lyon and the philanthropy of Charles Kirtland, aims to support LGBTQIA+ students as they pursue higher education so they can achieve their goals of making the world a better place.

Any LGBTQIA+ high school senior or undergraduate student who has volunteering or community service experience may apply for this scholarship but students in VA will be given preference.

To apply, tell us about a time when you were affected by a member of the LGBTQIA+ community and how the experience motivated you to be an activist.

Ambition, Impact, Activism
