Financial Aid Availability for LGBTQ Students
If you're a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or otherwise LGBTQ+ identifying student, we recommend you call your college(s) of interest you and ask if they have a LGBT Resource Center. The resource center should have information about local LGBTQ+ scholarships and any other available assistance. Click here to go to Financial Aid.
