LEAGUE Foundation Academic Scholarships

Since 1996, the LEAGUE at AT&T Foundation has awarded scholarships to self-identified lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (GLBT) graduating US High School Students based on the following achievements: a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale; significant involvement in community service; and acceptance to an accredited US college or university.


The Foundation is proud to offer the Matthew Shepard Scholarship. Since 1999 with the support of the Shepard family, the Foundation has honored Matthew's memory by awarding at least one scholarship to a student who had demonstrated leadership in promoting diversity and understanding in the community.

For the first time in 2006, LEAGUE Foundation awarded the Laurel Hester Memorial Scholarship. Working in conjunction with The Personal Liberty fund of the NJ Lesbian and Gay Coalition, this award was named after the Ocean County, NJ Police Lieutenant who successfully battled county freeholders for the right to leave her pension and other benefits to her surviving domestic partner.

Originally, the Foundation began as a grass-roots organization with the generous support of LEAGUE Members (Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender United Employees at AT&T). Through the years, however, the organization has grown into a national scholarship fund reaching all 50 states with support from corporations, individuals, and other GLBT organizations. For more information or an application please visit our website. Applications must be obtained through the website.

LEAGUE Foundation is a federally recognized 501c3 organization and contributions are tax deductible.
