In honor of Campus Pride’s 20th Anniversary, we are awarding Social Justice Mini-Grants for Activism to fund student-led projects on college and university campuses. The program offers grants of up to $600 to student activists involved in social justice work. Campus Pride announced the first round of mini-grant recipients in August. 

All grant recipients are working on projects that are entirely student-led. Campus Pride believes in supporting LGBTQ youth and helping them become leaders in their communities. Check out our blog about grant recipient David Shill’s Campus Pride-funded drag show with BYU Pride
