The QU Scholarship is for Arizona LGBT youth attending a college, university or vocational school in Arizona. Along with a monetary award of up to $10,000, QU Scholars enjoy the support of a team of academic, professional and service mentors.
If you are planning to start college or vocational training in Arizona in Fall 2018, or are currently attending such a school and will be enrolled through Spring 2020, the QU Scholarship may be for you.
Eligible applicants must also demonstrate active participation and leadership in the LGBT community.
