LGBTQ+ Alumni Association Student Program and Scholarship Fund

Indiana University Alumni Association General

The IU Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning + Alumni Association is an active and vibrant organization of IU alumni and friends who want to improve the quality of life for LGBTQ+ students, faculty, staff, and alumni from all IU campuses. Your contributions to our student program and scholarship fund can provide a safety net for students in crisis, and create opportunities for connection, learning, advocacy, and more. 

Additional Info

A gift to the LGBTQ+ Alumni Association Student Program and Scholarship Fund is a way to broadly support the LGBTQ+ community across all Indiana University campuses.

For some IU students, disclosing their sexual orientation or gender identity can result in family estrangement. In such a painful and desperate moment, having somewhere you can turn makes all the difference. Support from this fund can provide a vital safety net to students whose continued enrollment at IU is put in immediate financial jeopardy due to their courageous decision to be honest about their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Emergency scholarships are only one example of the impact your gift can have. Your contribution could also support opportunities such as:

  • Academic and emergency scholarships
  • Networking and social events
  • Mentoring and support programs
  • Assistance to campus LGBTQ+ culture centers
  • Educational activities
  • Advocacy work

Every person deserves to live their life openly and authentically, without fear of compromising their safety or potential for success. Thank you for your support!
