Although the rights and acceptance of the LGBT community has shown progress, that doesn’t mean that discrimination and intolerance don't exist. Students who identify as lesbian, gay, transgendered, or bisexual may still be faced with physical, verbal, or emotional bullying within their communities and schools. Thankfully, several rights organizations have stepped forward to help LGBT students feel encouraged to embrace who they are and pursue their dreams — including going to college. LGBT students, and those that help fight for their rights, may qualify for these scholarship awards to help pay for college. Browse our list of LGBT scholarships to discover resources and awards to help pay for your degree.
