Scarlet & Gay: The OSU LGBTQ Alumni Society – Scholarship Program

Scarlet & Gay: The OSU LGBTQ Alumni Society, is dedicated to making studying at The Ohio State University a financial reality for more LGBTQ students and their allies.  We offer nine scholarships to undergraduate students, including one that is dedicated to a student beginning their education at OSU for the 2021-2022 school year.  Additional scholarships exist for LGBTQ students who plan to study music, who have financial need, who have worked in the HIV/ AIDS community, or who are living with HIV/AIDS.  The scholarships range from $2,000 – $2,500 each and will be awarded to students who have demonstrated involvement and dedication to the LGBTQ community.

NEW THIS YEAR: For our 30th anniversary, in recognition of the need to address structural racism and promote social justice, the Board of Governors of Scarlet and Gay voted to donate the proceeds from this year’s fundraiser to support our Scarlet and Gay Scholarship for Queer People of Color (QPOC).  We will award 8 scholarships at $2,500 each ($20,000 total).

Special thanks to the College of Social Work’s LGBTQ+ Committee for its coordinated effort to sponsor two QPOC scholarships.
