The Color Purple Award

Annual Student Conference Travel Award

OSCLG instituted The Color Purple Award as one way to demonstrate our commitment to promoting and honoring diversity. The Color Purple Award is a travel grant program to assist students who enhance racial and ethnic diversity of people and ideas at our conference and in our organization.

Applications will open closer to the conference date.

Support The Color Purple Award and diversity within OSCLG by making a donation today. Donations are gratefully accepted in any amount.
