LGBTQ Diversity Scholarship

The LGBTQ Diversity Scholarship is for students interested in a career that supports LGBTQ populations in the fields of health, education, and psychology. This scholarship will award $18,000 in tuition assistance to selected recipients who demonstrate a commitment to research and practice surrounding LGBTQ issues and awareness. Teachers College (TC) is collaborating with the Tyler Clementi Foundation in offering this scholarship for this first time in 2014. Recipients of the award will be expected to construct a relevant service or research contribution to the Foundation.

Those interested in applying for the LGBTQ Diversity Scholarship must submit a fellowship personal statement (in addition to the statement of purpose one submits with their TC Application for Admission). Applicants must also submit the LGBTQ Diversity Scholarship Interest Form. Please read through the Interest Form carefully and make sure that you meet the stated requirements.
These two items must be submitted to by February 15th, 2014.

Please note: students must successfully complete and submit their application for admission to Teachers College before they may apply for the LGBTQ Diversity Scholarship.
