The Lambda Horizon Scholarship Fund is a component fund of the Community Foundation that supports students who have made contributions to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community at Virginia Tech through leadership, service, volunteering or research.

Established by the LGBT Caucus at Virginia Tech, the fund seeks applicants in good academic standing with a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. Preference is given to rising seniors at Virginia Tech who anticipate graduating in the next academic year. 

In addition to this scholarship, the LGBT Caucus is an active participant in the Virginia Tech Commission on Equal Opportunity and Diversity, sponsors social gatherings and educational programs such as the LGBT Community Picnic, Women's Week presentations, National Coming Out Day programs, speakers for classes, and other meeting opportunities for members and guests of the to share their experiences.
