Every year the Imperial Sovereign Gem Court of Idaho grants funds to LGBT students attending an Idaho school. Applicants come from a wide range of learning institutions such as high school, college, university, trade schools and other institutions as approved by the Scholarship Committee. Scholarship recipients are selected based upon their academic achievement and community service. Scholarships range from $100 to $1,000 with no more than $2,500 given out annually.
Since the 37th Reign the scholarship endowment fund has been known as the “Ken Litz-Bixler Scholarship” endowment fund in recognition of Gem Emperor XIX & XXIV’s many years of support and dedication to the education of LGBTQ students in Idaho. Scholarship recipients are announced at Coronation in July and recipients are also given a complimentary ticket to attend Coronation.
