Change a life.

Education changes lives for the better. Help us to make this change a reality within the LGBTIQ community.

The Education Fund

Launched in late 2019, the Sydney Gay & Lesbian Business Association (SGLBA) Education Fund, is unique in Australia as it is the only scholarship provided to members of the LGBTIQ+ community from age 30+ to help them improve their career.  Whether that is getting the education they may have missed earlier in life, or taking a course to advance their profession or even a short course to assist in growing their small business – the scholarship is intended to assist all of these paths. 

The course of study selected should be meaningful and demonstrate a benefit to the applicant’s life or, through them, the lives of other people within the Australian community.

The Education Fund helps our friends, colleagues and business owners – people like us.

In 2021 there were a number of scholarships awarded with sizeable grants of between $3,000 and $10,000.

Your generous contribution can continue to help make these happen. For further information or to discuss corporate partnership, please contact the Chair of the Fund Committee here.

You can change a life today.
