Alvarado/García Scholarship

High school Junior? Latino? GBQ? College-bound?


The Alvarado-Garcia Scholarship (AGS) in collaboration with the Association of Latino Men for Action (ALMA) was established to recognize and foster outstanding gay, bisexual and questioning Latino high school juniors who elect to attend an accredited two-year college or four-year university in Illinois.

The AGS offers financial assistance and a mentoring program to support scholars who are capable of leadership in their chosen career. Recipients of the AGS are required to create an activity to bring awareness to GBQ issues in their community as well as keep in contact with mentors throughout their academic career.

Scholars are eligible for $1,000 in financial assistance. Award is for school-only purchases. Documentation will need to be provided of purchases. Scholarship awards are based on academic performance, school or community activities, and eligibility criteria.
