Center Schools Scholarships

John Lawrence and Tyrone Garner Scholarship Fund of the Houston GLBT Community Center

Scholarship awarded in June

The fund supports scholarships for Texas gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students pursuing higher education. This Center established the fund in honor of John Lawrence and the late Tyrone Garner, the two petitioners in the landmark Lawrence v. Texas case, which overturned anti-gay sodomy laws in the United States. The scholarship recognizes outstanding leadership shown by Texas gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender high school seniors and current Texas undergraduates by contributing to the cost of their continuing education. Selection is based upon character and need, not academic performance alone. Center Treasurer Burton Bagby-Grose is Scholarship Committee chair. Interested students may contact him at treasurer@houstonglbtcommunitycenter.org.
