The GSBA Scholarship Fund

The GSBA Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to LGBTQ and allied students who exhibit leadership potential, demonstrate strong academic abilities, and are actively involved in school and community organizations. Founded in 1991, the GSBA Scholarship Fund has awarded over 650 scholarships totaling over $3 million.


To invest in the education of a diverse group of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and allied students who have the capacity and vision to be the next generation of leaders working to create a better world for all.


Diverse leaders who have the vision, compassion and capability to solve global issues and secure human rights for all.

The GSBA Guarantee

The Guarantee is our commitment to the ongoing funding of our undergraduate scholars. Every scholar who has met certain criteria is eligible for up to four years of undergraduate scholarship funding. This commitment to our scholars’ success and eventual graduation helps support our future leaders in a way that few programs are able to do. We ask our donors to consider also making ongoing commitments to help sustain the continuing support that is so vital to the success of our mission.

scholarship interview day 2017It is that time of year again! Students are busily applying for scholarships and we are preparing for interviews. Being a scholarship interviewer is a powerful experience, and we hope that you will be able to join us this year as we award over $350,000 to our future LGBTQ and allied leaders.

This year, we are expecting to utilize approximately 100 volunteers to support the interview and selection process for some of tomorrow's leaders. We will also need Team Facilitators, who guide the interview teams through the selection-making process. If you are interested in interviewing or facilitating this year, please complete the 2018 GSBA Scholarship Volunteer Information Form and be sure to save the dates below on your calendar.

The required dates to volunteer as an Interviewer for the 2018 scholarship interview cycle are:

Tuesday, January 30, 2018, 5:30 PM-7:30 PM
Facilitator Orientation (Facilitators Only)

Thursday, February 1, 2018, 5:30 PM-8:00 PM
Interviewer Orientation

Saturday, March 3, 2018, 9:00 AM-1:00 PM
Selection Day

Saturday, April 7, 2018, 9:00 AM-4:00 PM
Interview Day

Although not required, please save the date for The GSBA Scholars Dinner at the Waterfront Marriott on Friday, May 18, 2018 at 5:30 PM.

Since the application has not yet closed, it is hard to know just how many interviewers we will need. You will receive confirmation regarding your participation during the week of January 15th. Due to a very high volume of interested volunteers, all reviewers, interviewers, and selection team members will be chosen at the discretion of the GSBA Staff.

Here's to another rewarding scholarship cycle!
