Support Student Scholarship and Learning

Conference travel and registration grants

Conferences provide students the opportunity to present their scholarly and activist work to peers and professionals. Conferences also provide opportunities for supplemental and extracurricular learning opportunities, connections between classroom learning and professional pursuits and valuable networking and leadership opportunities.

Full-time student scholarships

Help a full-time student support their studies. Scholarshops help pay for tuition, fees and book costs

 

Part-time student scholarships

Part-time students are underserved in the realm of scholarship and aid opportunities. Many part-time students support themselves independently through full-time work. Help a part-time student cover tuition, fees and book costs.

 

Paid semester internship

Internships are required for many academic programs, yet many intern opportunities do not pay students for their work. Help a student fulfill their internship requirement while receiving pay for their work and focusing on a LGBT Resource Center project.

Graduate Student Assistantship

Graduate Assistantships provide paid professional experience to graduate students while they focus on an LGBT-related project at UNF. These positions also cover tuition for two courses.

 

Build the Resource Library

The LGBT Resource Center offers a library of more than 500 books, DVDs and videos related to gender, sexual orientation and the LGBT community. The materials are available for checkout to UNF students, faculty and staff for up to two weeks for books and one week for DVDs.

The Center welcomes donations of new and gently used books, magazines and academic journals, DVDs and CDs.
