Dively-Dupuis LGBTQ Scholarship

Dr. Martin Dupuis, associate dean of the Burnett Honors College, and Mr. Michael Dively, community activist and philanthropist, established the Dively-Dupuis LGBTQ Scholarship in 2017. It annually awards $1,400 to a high-achieving undergraduate who demonstrates leadership and activism within the LGBTQ community. The scholarship recipient will receive $700 in the fall and spring semesters.

  • Full-time UCF undergraduate student who demonstrates leadership and activism within the UCF LGBTQ community, as well as locally, nationally, and/or internationally
  • A cumulative grade-point average of at least 2.5
  • Preference will be given to juniors and seniors
  • The criteria for awarding the scholarship will be consistent with the UCF Office of Student Financial Assistance guidelines.
