US Lacrosse has announced the formation of a LGBTQ+ Inclusion Scholarship and proceeds from current Pride Month merchandise sales will help fund the scholarship.

US Lacrosse worked with an advisory group this spring to help plan activities around Pride Month, including a webinar series that kicked off last night. The US Lacrosse LGBTQ+ Inclusion Scholarship was one of the ideas generated from the advisory group’s discussions.

The scholarship provides financial support and hope to one admirable student-athlete who demonstrates positive sensitivity to and involvement in LGBTQ+ issues. This scholarship is designed to promote academic excellence and increased visibility of talented LGBTQ+ students in lacrosse.

The application will be open to self-identified LGBTQ+ individuals graduating high school seniors from the class of 2021. Applications for the scholarship will be available this coming February.
