The UGLA Scholarship Program

Following the successful completion of the Uptown Gay and Lesbian Alliance Scholarship Program for 2021, UGLA proudly announces its Scholarship Program for 2022. UGLA will award scholarship grants to qualifying graduating seniors from designated NE Los Angeles high schools who are planning to attend a four-year college or university.

Successful applicants will demonstrate an active commitment to issues of social justice in general, and in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and queer (LGBTQ+) community in particular.

While UGLA has long supported the scholarship program of Friends of Project 10, the UGLA Scholarship Program marks a significant commitment and step forward in UGLA’s support of our youth and their aspirations for the future.

Apply here!

Applications for the 2022 Scholarships will open in January 2022.

Help Support the UGLA Scholarship Program!

The UGLA Scholarship Program is well underway! This June, we proudly announced the winners of scholarship grants to qualifying graduating seniors from four high schools in the Northeast Los Angeles area. Successful applicants demonstrated an active commitment to issues of social justice in general, and in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and queer (LGBTQ+) community in particular.

For this program to continue into 2022 and beyond, we need your support! Each of us can help make a difference for our youth as they pursue their dreams and help build a better future for all of us. Every dollar helps. You can make a general donation or, by making a donation of $1,000 or more,  you can establish a named scholarship “in honor of” or “in memory of” someone special to you. 100% of your donation goes toward UGLA scholarships.

 

We would like to list you as a donor to the UGLA Scholarship Program. If you create a named scholarship with a donation of $1,000 or more, the name of your scholarship will also be listed. UGLA will not disclose the amount of your gift.

 

If you’d rather not be listed, follow the instructions to opt out during the donation process.
