The purpose of this grant program is to promote LGBT related scholarship that fosters an inclusive community for LGBT faculty and staff at GVSU.  All faculty and staff are eligible to apply.  Additional information, including application materials are available through the CSCE website.  Applications are due October 30th of each year.  Note: awards for this funding opportunity have increased to a maximum of $1000.


Past funded projects through the LGBT FSA grant include:


  • The Hidden Rainbow: Searching for LGBT Content in a Teacher Education Program; Forrest Clift (Center for Educational Partnerships).


  • Fighting Violence with Identity: The (Un)Intended Consequences of Identity-Based Anti-Violence; Laurel Westbrook (Sociology).
  • Enhancing the Study Abroad Experience for the LGBT (sexual minority) student community; Michael Scantlebury (Hospitality & Tourism Management).

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!
