Marquardt Peace and Possibility Speaker Series
The LGBT Resource Center is accepting student essays for the chance to win a cash scholarship:

Any student interested in sharing their experience for a chance to win a scholarship should submit an essay.
The LGBT Resource Center hosts the Marquardt Peace and Possibility Speaker Series every year. The series aims to bring high profile LGBTQ+ leaders and advocates to campus to provide cultural opportunities, enhance the "welcomeness" and inclusion of campus, and to cultivate our "ally" community.
Along with sharing the stories of prominate LGBTQ+ leaders, we also like to highlight the experiences and talents of our LGBTQ+ students.
How do you or can you use your talents, skills, and experience as an LGBTQ+ person or ally to achieve success and make a difference?
These questions can be used for guidance in addressing the topic:
- What does LGBTQ+ mean to you?
- How do you or would you leverage your talents, skills, and experience to achieve success and make a difference?
- In what ways has your LGBTQ+ identity or involvement with the LGBTQ+ community influenced your life?
Applicants must be current Weber State University students.
Essays should be typed, 500-750 words, and address the topic of the essay competition.
Essays are due and should be submitted to Jayson Stokes (firstname.lastname@example.org) by:
Monday November 26, 2018 at 5:00 pm.
Essay winners will be highlighted at a Lavendar Graduation Ceremony in December.
