Our goal in compiling this guide is to give LGBTQ students the resources they need to make the most of their college experience. But before we dive into the particulars, here’s a word of encouragement — college is way different than high school.
Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer (LBGTQ) students need the support of their communities to thrive in higher education. Many also need financial support. Thankfully, LGBTQ students can find a wealth of scholarships for college at both the undergraduate and graduate levels whether you’re looking to pursue a traditional on-campus degree, an online degree or a combination of college credit exams and traditional credits. That part you’ve no doubt gathered from our title.
What might surprise you, though, is that there are also all sorts of scholarships for LGBTQ-identifying students. LGBTQ scholarships are more inclusive than that, even. In fact, scholarships for college are available for all students who are actively involved in promoting acceptance and equality for all gay, lesbian and transgender communities.
