DelightedCooking's Annual LGBTQ+ Awareness Scholarship

LGBTQ+ Scholarship

Joining hands in fostering a more inclusive future, the annual WiseGeek LGBTQ+ Awareness Scholarship is a gesture of support to recognize and empower students who are proudly part of the LGBTQ+ community.

Scholarship Award: $1,000


About the Scholarship

“Equality means more than passing laws,” Barbara Gittings reminded us, emphasizing the importance of community in fostering inclusivity. LGBTQ+ students, when compared to their non-LGBTQ+ peers, face distinct challenges in higher education. According to the Williams Institute, LGBTQ+ students were four times more likely to choose a college away from home for a more welcoming environment and experienced higher rates of poor mental health, bullying, and harassment.

These adversities underscore the importance of supporting LGBTQ+ students in their academic journeys. The WiseGeek LGBTQ+ Awareness Scholarship is a commitment to this vision in solidarity with these future leaders. 

We acknowledge the unique challenges students face in a society often slow to embrace diversity. By supporting young scholars who are making important contributions to the LGBTQ+ community, we are working toward a future that values every individual's identity and rights. 

This recurring scholarship is an investment in those who will build bridges to understanding and acceptance. We aim to alleviate some of the financial burdens associated with higher education, enabling recipients to focus on their academic and advocacy efforts. Our recipients are not just students; they're change-makers reshaping society into a place where everyone is valued. The WiseGeek LGBTQ+ Awareness Scholarship is our commitment to them and their mission to create a world of equality and LGBTQ+ celebration.
