Albers-Alexander LGBTQ Law Scholarship

The Albers-Alexander LGBTQ Law Scholarship Fund is interested in supporting LGBTQ persons who are pursuing a law school degree.  

The scholarship program prioritizes supporting LGBTQ applicants who: 

  • Show leadership and courage on behalf of the LGBTQ community; 
  • Face barriers to educational access, including students who are economically, ethnically/racially, socially, geographically, or politically disenfranchised. For example: LGBTQ students of color, transgender students, LGBTQ immigrant students, LGBTQ students who are the first to attend college in their family, LGBTQ applicants who have experienced homelessness, foster care, poverty, or isolation due to geography; 
  • Demonstrate significant financial need 

The Albers-Alexander LGBTQ Law Scholarship Fund will be awarding a total of $100,000 for the 2021-22 academic school year. The maximum award will be $10,000.
