There are three scholarships for LGBT and allied students at GVSU.

The GVSU Faculty-Staff LGBT Scholarship was created by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) faculty and staff at Grand Valley State University and by others who are supportive of LGBT students.

The West Shore AWARE Scholarship was created by West Shore AWARE, a philanthropic organization of gay men and women striving to create a positive image by working for the community in which they live.

The Hamlin Endowed Memorial Scholarship was established in loving memory of Fredrick Keith Hamlin to assist students with the costs of a Grand Valley State University (GVSU) education who are involved with the GVSU Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) Resource Center and have demonstrated a career interest in environmental design, nursing, psychology or education.
