Multicultural Programming Fund (MPF)

The Multicultural Programming Fund (MPF) is intended to support students of the University of Puget Sound community in developing programs and activities that promote cultural and identity understanding. The MPF provides monetary resources to student organizations and groups that organize campus events that explore multicultural issues, enhance intercultural awareness of students, and creates community for students. 

LGBT Scholarship

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. 

LUCE Leadership Scholarship

The Puget Sound Latinxs Unidxs for Community & Education (LUCE) has created the LUCE 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, LUCE 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.
