LGBTQ Scholarship A Project of General Scholarships

The LGBTQ scholarship is for students who identify with the LGBTQ community and who have exhibited integrity and perseverance in overcoming personal adversity. A pre-condition for the scholarship: matriculated students at CCSU or accepted for enrollment as matriculated students at CCSU. Students apply during the standard scholarship window and submit a personal statement outlining their experiences as a member of the LGBTQ community.

The goal of this page is to help the scholarship reach $25,000 and become endowed. Time is a factor, we are unable to award any funds to deserving students until we have endowed the scholarship.

Your support of this scholarship not only supports the students receiving it, but strengthens the LGBTQ community at CCSU.
