Red Dinner III


Red Dinner is the annual fundraising gala for the University of Houston LGBTQ Alumni Association benefiting UH students who have been financially affected as a result of their sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.  The funds raised at the Red Dinner directly help reduce the economic impact to UH LGBTQ students whose families terminate financial support when they “come out” as their authentic persons. The UH LGBTQ Alumni Association also provides annual academic student scholarships.

Saturday, May 19th, 2018

This scholarship aims to encourage LGBTQ students to pursue studies at the University through this Scholarship Program.  Each scholarship is a one-time award paid each semester or one  award paid in the Fall semester (if the student is graduating in the fall semester).
