Description

Must intend to enroll as a full-time student while receiving the scholarship (minimum 12 credits for undergraduate, 9 credits for graduate per semester); and self-identify as a member of the LGBTQ community with a record of involvement in the LGBTQ community or be a dependent of self identified LGBTQ parent. One additional award available at $1,000 for a student involved in high school sports at the junior varsity or varsity level. Financial need as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (www.fafsa.ed.gov/). Minimum 2.5 cumulative GPA in high school or college courses. A previously awarded student may apply and be considered for subsequent awards along with new applicants, but the scholarship is not automatically renewed. A student will not be awarded for more than a total of four years on the scholarship.
