🏳️‍🌈 Scholarships

Here’s a list of scholarships we’ve found for LGBTQ+ teens. We recommend also checking whether your prospective university/college/school has a LGBTQ resource center; a center can help you identify local resources, support groups, & scholarships.

🏳️‍🌈 Voting

In Utah County, 16 and 17 year olds may pre-register to vote and will be automatically sent a ballot when they’re eligible to vote (age 18). Find more information at the Utah County Election Division’s website or at the Salt Lake County Election’s website.

🏳️‍🌈 For Teachers

Introduce yourself with your pronouns to your students and coworkers! Idea: Put just one rainbow sticker somewhere in your space, or wear a rainbow pin on your lanyard. There are lots of ways to show allyship! Find something that feels true to you.
