LEAGUE Foundation: Matthew Shepard Scholarship
The Foundation is proud to offer the Matthew Shepard Scholarship.
In October of 1998 the world was shocked at the malicious hate crime that occurred against the young college student from Wyoming.
Since 1999, with the support of the Shepard family, the LEAGUE Foundation has honored Matthew’s memory by awarding at least one scholarship to a student who had demonstrated leadership in promoting diversity and understanding in the community.
The LEAGUE Foundation provides financial resources for America’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender youth to attend institutions of higher learning to meet this mission.
