The event’s purpose was to demonstrate the university’s commitment to inclusion and diversity while honoring students interested in advancing LGBTQ advocacy.

Scholarship donors are encouraged to honor the landmark 2015 Supreme Court ruling that affirmed same-sex marriage by giving in increments using the 2-0-1-5 numerical sequence.

To date, the fund has raised $15,000.
