About Us

The Lambda Scholarship Foundation is a Canadian registered charity (#862758448RR0001). Its mission is to create graduate and undergraduate university scholarships in research pertaining to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI ) peoples in all their diversity and to reward LGBTI/straight alliance and human rights leaders in our high schools. Lambda aims to:

• create lasting and worthy legacies for today's and future generations of scholars researching LGBTI issues
• advance education in human rights, especially LGBTI rights
• support and draw attention to merit among LGBTI people as fine role models
• build bridges of understanding among LGBTI people and other equality-seeking groups in Canada

Lambda Foundation is governed by a national Board of Directors who oversee the scholarships and strive to strengthen our existing scholarship endowments and create new awards in partnership with our donors and educational institutions across the country.
