OPALGA+ Student Scholarship Fund 

OPALGA+ awards annual student scholarships for the continuing education of LGBTQ students, the children of LGBTQ parents, or their friends or allies. In 2020, we awarded $27,000 in scholarships. The total awards each year depend on the success of our fundraising. Scholarship money is paid directly to the school or institution a student plans to attend. Graduating high school students, or continuing college or trade school students are eligible. Students must reside or attend school within a 10-mile radius of Oak Park (Click HERE to view a radius map). We are looking for students who have shown service, activism, and an understanding of the LGBTQ community.
