Scholarships for LGBTQ Students

LGBTQ Students

LGBTQ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (and/or questioning) individuals/identities. LGBTQ 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 LGBTQ communities.

LGBTQ scholarships are distributed through both schools and private scholarship providers, many of which offer LGBTQ-specific financial aid opportunities as well.
