The LGBTQ Equality Scholarship

The LGBTQ Equality Scholarship is a need-based award to support students with a motivation to complete their degree, as well as a demonstrated interest in supporting the work of the Dr. Jesse R. Peel LGBTQ Center. The Equality Scholarship was created in recognition of the financial need of some LGBTQ students whose life circumstances may create economic hardship due to limited or no family support. Further, the Equality Scholarship is designed to support students to achieve success by easing some of the stress of financial hardship. This scholarship is available to current students in good academic standing and is renewable annually but the recipient is expected to complete a new application each academic year.
