Meet Your Scholars



















From the halls of Congress to hospitals, court rooms, and NASA, the 490 LGBTQ and allied students - including 60 current GSBA Scholars - who've received GSBA Scholarships since 1991 represent a talented, diverse group of LGBTQ leaders.

The GSBA Scholarship Fund invests in scholars who possess the talent, drive, and insight to make their dreams of building a better world reality

The GSBA Scholarship Fund











The GSBA Scholarship Fund is the oldest and one of the most active LGBTQ scholarship programs in the country. Since its founding in 1991, the GSBA Scholarship Fund has invested more than $5 million in hundreds of LGBTQ and allied students who exemplify leadership potential, strong academic ability, and community involvement and dedication.

The Fund also works to empower students with marginalized intersectional identities within the LGBTQ community - and provides not only financial support, but a network of support, skills-based workshops, and more - including the annual Leadership Immersion Weekend.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, LGBTQ students are facing extraordinary financial hardships. Your investment today in the GSBA Scholarship Fund will help our leaders of tomorrow make it through these unprecedented times.
