Creating Change Scholarship

LGBT Education and Support Services invites students to apply for a sponsored trip to the 2018 Creating Change Conference, presented by the National LGBTQ Task Force January 24–28, 2018, in Washington, D.C.

The LGBTESS-sponsored trip includes your flight, hotel, and conference registration, and the opportunity to embark on this trip with a cohort of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, aromatic, and allied students. If selected, not only will you attend the Creating Change Conference, you will also be learning from fellow UO students, engaging in discussions, and invested in a collective group experience.

The UO Creating Change cohort will be traveling and lodging together for this experience; however, you will be able to attend any workshop or presentation individually. This is an opportunity to collaborate, network, learn, explore, share, and reflect with other LGBTQIA+ advocates, educators, students, and professionals from across the country.

This year’s conference will be held January 24–28 at Wardman Marriott Park in Washington, D.C. The main conference activities begin on Friday, January 26; however, there are optional individual day-long institutes available starting January 24. General information about the conference—including descriptions of conference sessions, amenities, and activities—may be found at

Application closing date is November 10. For more information about the scholarship, contact the LGBTESS office at
