Education is a powerful tool for creating personal growth and positive change.

Unfortunately, LGBTQ+ individuals often encounter distinct obstacles that can impact their mental, emotional, and physical well-being, on top of the stressors that naturally come with school. Discrimination, social stigma, and a lack of access to proper resources are just a few examples of the challenges faced by the LGBTQ+ community, both in and out of the classroom.

This scholarship aims to support and empower the next generation of LGBTQ+ leaders so they can find personal and professional fulfillment in addition to creating a more inclusive and equitable society.

Any LGBTQ+ high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident may apply for this scholarship.
