The Gamma Mu Foundation was established as an organization which will help the rural areas of the United States.
Its aim is to support to members of the LGBT community who are eager to achieve higher education, but cannot do it due to financial needs and lacks.
The main goal is the acceptance, and pride in the LGBT community, their equality and advancement in every field of life.
Scholarships which are awarded can be used for paying the tuition, books and educational costs of those students enrolled in an accredited college, university, vocational or professional school in the United States.
The financial aid cannot be used for any other purpose.
The award of the scholarship ranges between $1,000 and $2,500.
This can be used for under- or post-graduate studies or in the vocational program and the award is not given directly to a recipient, but is provided to the particular institution and can be used during one year, meaning that the scholarship is not renewable.

- to be a gay man under 35 years of age,
- to have completed high school by June of the current year
- to be admitted to an accredited college, university, or vocational institution
