AFW serves as the funding catalyst for LBT wellness and equality in South Florida through grants, scholarships and initiatives.
Our annual grant program awards local organizations for projects supporting women’s wellness and equality
We provide scholarships for college or graduate students who are active in South Florida’s community. A key role of this program is to encourage and build LBT leadership .
Each scholarship recipient is paired with a mentor. Typically in the same field as the recipient’s field of study, the mentor provides guidance with her education and community goals.
AFW identifies and targets the needs of the LBT women’s community and develops initiatives designed to incentivize our community to fulfill them.
