Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, Transgender Resource Center (LBGTRC) Unconditional Love Fund

Students hanging out at the LGBTRC.The Unconditional Love Fund was created to provide LGBTQA+ students at Michigan State University with flexible assistance in a timely manner to address extraordinary and unexpected financial hardships associated with their sexual and/or gender identity. LGBTQA+ students often face financial expenses that their families are unable or unwilling to help them address, including transition-related expenses. Some LGBTQA+ students lose family financial support during their MSU experience due to their family’s reactions to their gender and/or sexual identity.

Funds are available to students who apply to the Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay, and Transgender Resource Center who are unable to meet immediate, essential expenses due to temporary hardship related to unforeseen or emergency situations. This funding does not need to be repaid. Financial awards are made available to assist students with expenses that support their health, wellness, and safety.

Give to The Unconditional Love Fund and Help LGBTQA+ Spartans meet unexpected financial needs related to their gender and/or sexual identities

LGBTQA+ Spartans need you when their families are unwilling or unable to help them. Students may apply once per semester (with a maximum of twice per academic year). Students may request up to $500.00 per application.
