OutFront Minnesota Scholarship
OutFront Minnesota is the largest statewide organization advocating for and serving lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) Minnesotans. OutFront Minnesota's mission is to create a state where LGBTQ+ people are free to be who they are, love who they love, and live without fear of violence, harassment, or discrimination. We are leading Minnesota toward LGBTQ+ equity through a combination of public policy, legal and individual advocacy, and education.

The purpose of the OutFront Minnesota Scholarship is to provide financial assistance to graduating high school students and or current college students who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community and plan on attending an institution of higher learning.

The founder of this scholarship program, Dan Livak, wanted to create a scholarship to help members of our community advance themselves through education. He started managing on his own at 16, working full time while also maintaining a full high school and then college curriculum. Having to figure everything out without a support network can be difficult, and this scholarship program was created to help out on that at least a little, through financial aid and mentoring support.
