Each graduate is also able to nominate up to 3 faculty or staff members who they would like recognized for their advocacy or contribution to helping them make it through to graduation (advocate appreciation).
The Louis Crompton Scholarship is a $500 annual scholarship, established in 2009, and is awarded each spring for the upcoming academic year. Students connected to or contributing to the LGBTQA community at UNL are encouraged to apply. The recipient is announced at Lavender Graduation and the Chancellor's Award reception.

The Chancellor's Award for Outstanding Contributions to the GLBT Community was established in 2000 with Dr. Vernon Williams as the first recipient. The student award was established in 2003 with Ryan Fette as the first recipient.
