2018 LEAGUE Foundation Application Period Is Now Open!
Every student has the right and the potential to excel. The LEAGUE Foundation provides financial resources for America's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Queer high school seniors entering their first year of institutions of higher learning. The scholarship application opens annually in January and closes in April with awards distributed in the summer of each year.
Who we are:
Since 1996, LEAGUE Foundation has awarded 132 college scholarships totaling $285,500 to self- identified lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) graduating US High School Students based on the following achievements: a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale; significant involvement in community service; and acceptance to an accredited US college or university
Originally, the Foundation began as a grass-roots organization with the generous support of LEAGUE Members (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender United Employees at AT&T). Through the years, however, the organization has grown into a national scholarship fund reaching all 50 states, the District of Columbia and all U.S. Territories, with support from corporations, individuals, and other LGBTQ organizations.
