LGBTQ Business Scholarship Award


Scholarship Value: $5,000
Awards Available: 1

With the generous support of founding donor LinguiSearch, the Business Scholarship Award has already helped three worthy student recipients. And thanks to a donation from the Balleroy Initiative, our organizations have begun the efforts to build an endowment that will benefit the student business leaders of tomorrow.

The $5,000 scholarship is awarded for educational expenses to include tuition, books and supplies, and/or room and board. Where possible, the scholarship funds will be payable on the student's behalf directly to the school.

To be eligible to receive this award, an applicant must be (1) a self-identified LGBTQ student OR an allied student supportive of the LGBTQ community; (2) currently enrolled full-time at an accredited college or university in the Greater Philadelphia region (this includes Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Montgomery, and Delaware counties in PA; Mercer, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties in NJ; and New Castle County in DE); (3) working toward an undergraduate or graduate degree in a business program/major and (4) able to demonstrate leadership roles.

Applicants are reviewed on the basis of academic credentials, business interest, a letter of recommendation, leadership potential and roles, community service and involvement, financial need, future career goals, and an interview (when applicable).

For purposes of this award, a business program includes, but may not be limited to: Business Management, Finance, Leadership, Organizational Development, Organizational Dynamics, Entrepreneurship, Economics, and/or Accounting, or any combination of major/minor encompassing these subject areas.

IBA, DVLF and LinguiSearch, Inc. employees, board members and their immediate families are not eligible to apply for the scholarship.
