Aqua Foundation for Women Scholarship Program
Each year the Foundation awards Emerging Leader Scholarships to members of the South Florida LBT community. Through these scholarships, the Foundation provides direct funds for the scholars educational expenses, a mentor and opportunities to develop and enhance leadership and community building and networking skills.
Aqua Foundation for Women Grants Program
The Foundation awards direct grant funds to nonprofit organizations serving the LBT Community in South Florida. The focus of the grants vary by year but aim to support organizations that are working directly with the LBT community in training, education, empowerment, leadership, health and wellness.
Each year the Foundation hosts TransCon, a conference for members of the Transgender, gender non-conforming communities and their allies. The conference is over two-days and consists of a job fair, workshops and a keynote address. The conference is designed to be a safe space and is opened up to the entire community and is free of charge.
