/ Get Involved / Diversity Initiatives / Lavender Ceremony
Each year, the Lavender Ceremony celebrates the successes of students by recognizing LGBTQ+ scholarship recipients and bestowing rainbow stoles on graduating students who identify as LGBTQ+.
Support LGBTQIA+ Scholars
Since 2009, the USF Alumni Association LGBT Scholarship has awarded more than $40,000 to support our high achieving LGBTQ+ student leaders. Our goal is to raise more financial support for deserving students and to bring awareness to issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community and generate dialogue amongst students, faculty, staff and alumni.
Thank you to our 2023 Lavender Graduation Ceremony presenting sponsor!
