The Puget Sound LGBT Leadership Scholarship Fund was established in 2000 in order to recognize students who have demonstrated leadership and involvement in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA+) community at the University of Puget Sound (including, but not limited to, participation in Prism, community organizations, and activist groups). The purpose of the scholarship is to complement successful academic experiences by providing financial support for student leadership and involvement in the LGBT community at Puget Sound. The committee welcomes applications from students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, non-binary, queer, intersex, asexual, or as allies.
Latinxs Unidos Leadership Scholarship
The Puget Sound Latinxs Unidos has created the Latinxs Unidos Leadership Scholarship in order to support the University of Puget Sound’s immigrant student population. As a student group uniquely concerned with issues impacting the wider Latinx community, Latinxs Unidos recognizes the impact that being an immigrant may have on a student’s decision to attend a liberal arts college such as the University of Puget Sound. This scholarship is intended to provide financial support to any student who is an immigrant, documented or undocumented. The scholarship is to be awarded on an annual basis to a student who is enrolled or is committed to enroll full time at the University of Puget Sound. Preference will be given to students who identify as Hispanic and/or Latinx.
The Black Student Union "One More" Scholarship
The Black Student Union "One More" Scholarship was created in 2014 by the Black Student Union of Puget Sound in order to increase the benefits of having a racially diverse environment in which to learn and grow. The scholarship aims to alleviate some of the barriers to pursuing higher education for fellow students of color by providing financial support.

Asian/Pacific Islander Scholarship
The Asian/Pacific* Islander Scholarship was created in 2017 by members of the Asian/Pacific Islander Collective and the Asian Student Community in order to alleviate financial barriers to higher education for A/PI students. The Asian/Pacific Islander Scholarship was especially designed to be mindful of students who are low-income, first-generation American, first-generation college students, native/indigenous to the islands of Micronesia, Melanesia, or Polynesia, undocumented, disabled, and/or facing other significant barriers to the cost of a Puget Sound education. The scholarship gives preference to students who self-identify as Asian or Pacific Islander, are in fair academic standing, and demonstrate leadership or community involvement.
