LGBT Foreign Affairs Scholarship Board
The LGBT Foreign Affairs Scholarship Board will award one $2,500 scholarship to a disadvantaged student who plans to intern in a foreign affairs-related field in the summer of 2010. The LGBT Foreign Affairs Scholarship serves as need and merit-based financial aid for students pursuing degrees and/or careers in foreign affairs. The fund helps reduce the personal costs for students in high cost areas such as Washington, DC or in other world capitals or cities.
The Scholarship partners with the U.S. Department of State’s officially recognized LGBT affinity group, Gays and Lesbians in Foreign Affairs Agencies (GLIFAA), to foster knowledge of international issues and careers for disadvantaged youth (view more information about this group here: http://www.glifaa.org/.
