Lynn Bove

Donate In Honor of Lynn Bove

This fund was created to support a Lynn Bove Scholarship and OUTShine. Lynn worked tirelessly for both Aqua Foundation for Women and OUTShine Film Festival. We know she will be so proud to have a scholarship in her name and funds to support the film festival that she loved so much. All monies collected will be split 50/50 between the two organizations.

The Elizabeth Schwartz Scholarship

The Elizabeth Schwartz Scholarship

The Elizabeth Schwartz Scholarship at AQUA was created to provide a $10,000 award to 2nd or 3rd year LGBTQ female law students. In addition, Liz has generously offered to mentor the scholarship recipient/s. This program was created to honor Liz and to assure others continue in her legacy of activist lawyering for LGBTQ rights.
