Apply for a scholarship

We take education seriously, knowing that it has the power to help LGBTQ people overcome complex social and economic barriers. For nearly 15 years, we have partnered with donors to create scholarships that provide unique opportunities and access to education, both in New York City and throughout the country.


Traub-Dicker Rainbow Scholarship

The Traub-Dicker Rainbow Scholarship was established by Peggy Traub and Phyllis Dicker to encourage and support women-identified lesbians in their pursuit of higher education. This program provides one-year scholarships of $1,500 or $3,000 to those graduating high school or already enrolled in college in any year of study, including graduate school. Scholarships are paid directly to the recipient’s school and are applied toward tuition. Submissions are judged on:

  • Academic achievement

  • Outstanding community service and leadership

  • Commitment to impacting LGBTQ issues

Applications for the 2019 Traub-Dicker Rainbow Scholarship are now closed. The 2020 application will be available in April 2020.
