Each year, the Lavender Ceremony celebrates the successes of students by recognizing LGBT scholarship winners and bestowing 50 rainbow stoles on graduating students who identify as LGBTQIA+.
Support LGBT Scholars
Since 2009, the USF Alumni Association LGBT Scholarship has awarded more than $40,000 to support our high achieving LGBTQIA+ student leaders. Our goal is to raise more financial support for deserving students and to bring awareness to issues affecting the LGBTQIA+ community and generate dialogue amongst students, faculty, staff and alumni.
Steven Currall, USF President
Our university is comprised of a fascinating fabric of individuals with different perspectives that inform each person’s individuality.
