NMU ALLIES is an organization at Northern Michigan University for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. Its purpose is to provide an avenue for faculty, staff, and students who wish to offer visible support for a safe university environment for faculty, staff, and students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or other sexual and gender minorities. Throughout their generosity, ALLIES offers a scholarship.
Applicants of the ALLIES Scholarship must be full-time students at Northern Michigan University in good academic standing and show documented leadership, support, or involvement in organizations, activities, or issues that promote awareness and acceptance of the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender (GLBT) community at Northern Michigan University. The number of actual scholarships differs, and the dollar amounts vary (though it's no less than $500 per year).
