Growing LGBTQ+ Leaders Through Our Endowment

The Clemson LGBTQ+ Alumni Scholarship Endowment was established in 2011 to provide merit-based scholarships to undergraduate students who have made contributions to the LGBTQ+ community through leadership, service, volunteering, or research.

The student selection is managed by the Clemson University Office of Inclusion and Equity. After reaching the minimum balance of $25,000 in 2017, five students have received a scholarship. As of May 31, 2020, the Council has raised $52,501.85 for the endowment.

Our giving records show there have been 429 gifts from 92 donors, with an average gift of $121.12. Be on the lookout for an upcoming announcement about a matching gift challenge.
