The scholarships listed here are not specifically for GLBT students. However, many GLBT students may be eligible to apply for them.
Please note: GLYS has no way of knowing if a particular scholarship sponsor has anti-GLBT policies or discriminates against GLBT individuals. Please check info and application language carefully. GLYS suggests that until you KNOW that a sponsor is GLBT friendly/affirming, that you do not “come out” in your application process without giving this step careful consideration. If you find that information here is outdated or that a sponsor does discriminate against GLBT individuals, please let us know so that we take steps to inform other interested students. Thank you.
