LGBT Leadership Scholarship

The Puget Sound LGBT Leadership Scholarship Fund was established in 2000 to recognize students who have demonstrated leadership and involvement in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community at the University of Puget Sound (including, but not limited to, participation in Queer Student Alliance, community organizations, and activist groups). The committee welcomes applications from students who self-identify as part of the queer community including (but not limited to) lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans individuals.
