The GSBA Scholarship Fund is one of the oldest and most active LGBTQ scholarship programs in the country. Since its founding in 1991, the GSBA Scholarship Fund has invested $3.4 million in LGBTQ students who exemplify leadership potential, strong academic ability, and community involvement and dedication. The scholarship program works to empower students with marginalized intersectional identities within the LGBTQ community and provides not only financial support for LGBTQ students, but a network of support, skills-based workshops, and a yearly three-day leadership immersion camp.
