We believe that one way to elevate our community is through higher education. We recognize that there are many deserving college students in the LGBT+ community who may need assistance, mentoring, and support in their college careers, and who, due to their identification as LGBT+ may be at risk for loss of educational funding and support.

To support those students, we provide a $2500 scholarship, distributed half in fall and half in spring semester. Please see below for the application details.
