Yes, absolutely. Children of all genders and sexualities who come from LGBTQ+ families are an important part of our communities and do qualify for our scholarships.

You never have to be out, or outed, to be a part of this scholarship program. All information submitted in the scholarship application is held in the strictest confidence. It is only ever used for the scholarship awarding process. Our main contact method is email, and we ask for consent before sending snail mail. If awarded, scholars are given the choice about what of their information is shared how, and when.
Our scholarships cover any accredited post-secondary school or program.
Students can receive as many scholarships as they are eligible. The average award for a student in 2023 was $6,700 and the largest total award was $31,500. The largest single scholarship award is $12,500.
