Looking to give back this Pride Month? Through the month of June, the Pride Center is raising money to support our student scholarship fund!

Your support for our Volunteer community is more important than ever as more and more diverse students are pursuing higher education and basic needs expenses like housing, food, and textbooks increase. Over the last two years we have given out 11 scholarships to Volunteers with a demonstrated commitment to advocacy for the LGBTQ+ community at UT and/or throughout east Tennessee, and we need YOU to help us grow our fund so we can offer more money to more scholars! Our scholarships are open to all applicants regardless of religion, sex, gender identity, sexuality, national origin, citizenship, disability, or veteran status. Every student deserves to matter and belong at Rocky Top, and you can help us get there!

“At the Pride Center, we support the academic and social growth of our student community inside and outside of our space. Through your donation to our VOLstarter campaign, you will help us put money directly back into our students’ pockets to support their higher education journeys. Our students need our fiscal support more than ever!” – Bonnie Johnson, Pride Center Director
