GRANTS TO INDIVIDUALS
Margot Karle Scholarship Fund
The Margot Karle Scholarship was founded in 1995 to honor the life of Margot, who as a lesbian attorney and the Director of New York's Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, made significant contributions to the struggle for human rights. The Margot Karle Scholarship Fund supports undergraduate women who show a deep commitment to their communities through activism and volunteering.
Astraea will not be awarding a Margot Karle Scholarship Award in fiscal year 2013. Since 1995, we have awarded grants totaling almost $15,000 to women at eight CUNY schools.
GLOBAL ARTS FUND
Astraea's revitalized Global Arts Fund will support, showcase, and connect impactful art by LGBTQI people and organizations with limited access to resources, who use art as a tool for social transformation. Supporting the arts across mediums and disciplines, the fund will consider submissions, requested through a nomination process, in many artistic expressions: video, film, poetry, fictional prose, photography, painting, performance, dance, theater, music and other interdisciplinary expressions.
The intended 2013 Global Arts Fund theme is migration, transit, and movement experienced by marginalized LGBTQI communities in the U.S. and Global East and Global South in the face of exploitations wrought by globalization, imperialism, and neocolonialism.
