Scholarships for Gay or Lesbian Students

Gay or Lesbian Students

Gay/Lesbian scholarships aren't just available to students based on their sexual orientation or identity. Rather, they are also open to students who demonstrate active involvement in promoting equal rights and acceptance of the gay and lesbian communities.

Gay/lesbian scholarships are distributed through schools, like the LGBT Scholarship at Hofstra University, and small organizations, such as the Bread and Roses Community which awards the Lax Scholarship Fund for Gay Men.
