Past funded projects through the LGBT FSA grant include:

Regardless of the funding source, the LGBT FSA is still interested in highlighting GVSU scholarship that is both related to LGBT issues and that supports the mission of the FSA.  If your scholarship satisfies these criteria, please let us know.  We would like to further promote your scholarship on our website!
