USC Lambda Scholarships
Since 1994, USC Lambda has awarded scholarships to students who demonstrate academic achievement and a strong commitment to the LGBT community, regardless of gender or sexual identity. We have awarded more than $400,000 in scholarships to more than 100 USC students. These recipients have gone on to executive roles in Fortune 500 companies and LGBT nonprofits. They have spearheaded research in technology and sociology, produced award-winning films and argued cases before the Supreme Court. They are doctors, educators, artists and activists who inspire our LGBT student body to see their sexual and gender identities as strengths, not obstacles.
