The SMYAL LGBT Youth Leadership Awards recognize student leaders who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership and impact in their school or communities. These post-secondary scholarships provide a total of up to $25,000 to 5-8 students a year in honor of their leadership as they continue their education. Individual scholarships of up to $5,000 each are paid directly to winners to help offset the cost of tuition, books, materials, housing, travel, and other expenses associated with school.
Since 2015, the YLAs have awarded $107,000 to 41 student leaders, learn more about our past winners below!
