This year, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Iowa added questions about sexual orientation to their undergraduate applications, joining Elmhurst College in Illinois and the law schools at Boston University, the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Washington.

  3. Iowa added “transgender” as a third possibility in its required gender section, plus an optional question: “Do you identify with the L.G.B.T.Q. community?” In a pool of 21,500 first-year applicants, 488 answered “yes.” (2%) The students — some of whom may be straight, given the wording of the query — received an e-mail from Iowa’s chief diversity officer describing support services for gay students
Officials insist that identifying as lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender-questioning does not affect chances of being admitted

[MIT leaves the lgbt question out of the pdf printout and is concerned parents might look at the student answer]

...Most institutions don’t find the questions appropriate, particularly on undergraduate applications. In 2011, the board of the Common Application, which is used by 488 colleges and universities, rejected a proposal to add a sexual orientation question to its form, citing concerns that it would cause anxiety and uncertainty for students deciding if they should answer it.

    The GLAAD Dissertation Fellowship Program aims to foster and promote rigorous scholarship as a vital form of intellectual activism.

    Examples of potential research topics include (but are not limited to): the effects of the economic and social organization of media industries on representations of sexual and gender identity; the formation and development of independent media sectors by and for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people; the reception of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender television characters by a range of audiences; public opinion on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues; the development and political intervention of anti-gay media campaigns; the social and cultural significance of the erotic press for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people; media coverage of legislative reform in contemporary and historical contexts; media images of AIDS activism and of people with AIDS/HIV; youth-oriented images of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people, including such educational materials as textbooks and classroom videos; queer cultures in cyberspace.
    The GLAAD Dissertation Fellowship Program encourages disciplinary and methodological diversity, and thus seeks proposals from the humanities, social sciences, public health, public policy, education and allied fields.
    To apply, applicants must submit a cover sheet as well as three (3) copies of: (1) a 6-8 page project description that demonstrates how the applicant's research addresses the themes of the fellowship program and that outlines the project's methodology or research approach; (2) a 2-page bibliography.

    National: United Church of Christ Gay Seminary Scholarships
    The United Church of Christ (UCC) offers scholarships to lesbians and gay men who will work in church ministry. A $500,000 fund has been established and the church said it expects to award at least 10 students annually and hopes to double the fund. "This fund is a powerful reminder that the response to God's call to ministry should not be limited by economics or sexual orientation," says John H. Thomas, president of UCC.
    The scholarship is named after the Rev. William R. Johnson, who in 1972 became the first openly gay man to be ordained by the UCC. He is currently a staff member at the church's national offices in Cleveland. Johnson said he is pleased to lend his name to the scholarship. In 1970 he lost his seminary field job when he came out as openly gay. He was only able to remain at the seminary after a church member arranged a scholarship.
    The United Church of Christ was formed in 1957 with the merger of the Congregational Christian Churches and the Evangelical and Reformed Church. and is considered one of the most progressive denominations in regard to lesbian and gay issues. UCC identifies itself as "one of the most diverse Christian churches in the United States." Even as early as 1969, the church took a stand opposing sodomy laws and the military's ban on lesbians and gay men serving in the military.
    Information on the W.R. Johnson Fund and other scholarship funds is available from Local Church Ministries, 216-736-3839. Contributions earmarked "W.R. Johnson Scholarship Fund" may be sent to Local Church Ministries, United Church of Christ, 700 Prospect Ave, Cleveland, OH 44115-1100.
