Out to Innovate Scholarships
Out to Innovate Scholarships are available to LGBTQ students interested in pursuing a STEM career. The scholarships are offered to undergraduate and graduate students who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or students who are an active ally of the LGBTQ community.

Applicants must be pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) programs. Two scholarships are awarded annually. Students can be currently enrolled at any U.S.-based college or university. Candidates must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or above. They must have also completed a minimum of two years of post-high school education at an accredited college or university.

Two scholarships are awarded each Fall for the academic year. One scholarship will be awarded to an undergraduate student, and one scholarship will go to a graduate/professional level student. Scholarship money can be used for the recipient’s education or research.

The scholarship is offered by the National Organization of Gay and Lesbian Scientists and Technical Professionals, Inc. (NOGLSTP), established in 1980 as a grassroots network to address those issues surrounding homophobia in the scientific workplace. The organization became an official nonprofit organization in 1991 to promote LGBT visibility and equality in the workplace.

The deadline for this scholarship is usually in JUNE of each year, and the award amount is usually $5,000.
