OPALGA awards student scholarships for the continuing education of LGBTQ students, or the children of LGBTQ parents, or allies of the LGBTQ community. Each year we award 4-5 scholarships of $2,000 to selected students. This money is paid directly to the school or institution the student plans to attend. The scholarships are for graduating high school students, or for continuing college or trade school students. Students need to reside in — or attend school in — the greater Chicagoland area.
We look for students who have shown service, activism, and an understanding of the LGBTQ community.
