About the Scholarship
Team DC Student-Athlete Scholarships provide up to $2,000 of financial support to offset the cost of educational expenses. Scholarships are awarded to self-identified lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ+) student-athletes who have contributed to the sport in which they participate and enhanced the perception of the LGBT community as a result of their contributions and involvement.
Scholarships are given to graduating high school seniors in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area who will attend an accredited two- or four-year college or university. Candidates must demonstrate dedication to both academic and athletic excellence as well as show promise as an LGBTQ+ role model.
