Join us for our annual Pride Gala!


We have rebranded our LGBTQIA+ Pride Scholarship Dinner to the Pride Gala!

This evening honors the courage and spirit of LGBTQIA+ activists whose activism set an example of the crucial connection between education and social change. This event is a way to encourage and support all members and allies of the LGBTQIA+ community on the three campuses of the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh and the Greater Fox Valley.

Our goal is to provide scholarships for both UW Oshkosh students and high school students in the Fox Valley who will be enrolling at one of the UW Oshkosh campuses who have done activism for the LGBTQIA+ community.


Things you can Expect:

Cash Bar – Silent Auction – Live Music – Art Gallery
