Audre Lorde Scholarship Fund

Fund History
Established in 1995, the Audre Lorde Scholarship Fund is administered by ZAMI and is the brainchild of its current board chair, Mary Anne Adams. The first two scholarships were awarded in 1997 and since that time, the fund has awarded 114 scholarships.

The Audre Lorde Scholarship Awards are designed to recognize out* lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender students of color who are making significant contributions to their communities. ZAMI wants to support and encourage their continuing education by providing scholarships to those students enrolled in accredited technical, undergraduate and graduate programs. In 2007, the Fund awarded fourteen $1000 scholarships.
