About the LOUD Foundation

The LOUD Foundation invests in future leaders of the Canadian LGBTQ community. We believe that by supporting the development of students who possess drive, vision, compassion and knowledge, we can improve society and increase awareness of our diverse community.

When the Foundation was first formed in 2009, we gave away two LOUD Scholarships of $2,000 and one Little Sister's Bookstore Scholarship of $1,000. 

In 2018, we awarded 16 scholarships to deserving emerging leaders.

Applications open in November, close January 31st annually. MORE ON SCHOLARSHIPS
