Wayne Hadley Scholarship Fund's LGBT Award

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Center advances the diversity mission of Ohio University by creating a campus environment inclusive and supportive of sexual orientation and gender identity or expression. As part of this mission, the LGBT Center is excited to offer the Wayne Hadley Scholarship Fund’s LGBT Award to support LGBT identified undergraduate students during their academic career at OHIO, with preference given to students participating in some form of travel experience. Recipients of the Wayne Hadley Scholarship can receive up to $1000 (amount will vary and the award will be distributed through your Ohio University student account).

Applicant Eligibility Requirements:
• Must be enrolled at Ohio University as a full-time, degree-seeking UNDERGRADUATE student.
• Must be in good academic standing.
• Must identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer, and/or transgender.

Award can be used throughout the academic year. The award can be applied to programs taking place during Fall Semester, Spring Semester, Winter Break, Spring Break, or Summer Sessions.
