UMKC provides three scholarships to our LGBTQIA students
The Empowerment Scholarship
A&S LGBTQIA Scholarship:
The LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and ally) Scholarship is designed to support students regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity and sex, who are enrolled in any degree program at UMKC, who maintain at least a cumulative 2.0 GPA and who demonstrate support of the LGBTQIA community, either on-campus or off-campus, through significant support, engagement, and/or volunteering. Students must submit an one page essay detailing their past and current support and/or involvement in the LGBTQIA community.
