LGBT Scholarships

In our contemporary world, tolerance to diversity is something highly desired and valued but, unfortunately, not always smoothly implemented.

Sadly, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is still widespread in our society, and it occasionally also affects admission in various colleges and universities.

The LGBT scholarships aim to redress this situation and to actively promote the integration of members from LGBT communities into highly-ranked educational institutions.

These scholarships will give you unique opportunities and generous funding for pursuing your academic dreams in institutions which also offer continuous assistance regarding your psychological well-being and help you successfully cope with any problems you might encounter during your studies.
