                   NEW Announcement for 2024 GSA Mini-grants!


Good news!!!  With support from our generous donors, OSSCC was
able to provide mini-grants to new and established Student
Groups in 10 elementary, middle, and high schools across our
state to support student-led projects that make their schools feel
safer and more welcoming to LGBTQ2SIA+ youth.

 

                We look forward to sharing more about their unique projects later in the year!

OSSCC is pleased to announce that we are again offering mini-grants of up to $200 to Gay/Straight Alliances (GSAs), Queer/Straight Alliances (QSAs), and other similar student groups working with and serving LGBTQ+ students. These grants help Student Groups across Oregon carry out the vital work necessary to keep our schools affirming, safe, and welcoming for youth.         

In order to be eligible for a mini-grant, groups/projects must agree to the following:

  • The project must be planned, directed, and implemented by youth;

  • The group has a school sponsor or advisor to receive funds;

  • The project must be completed by June 30th, 2024;

  • The grant recipients must agree to submit a brief report form describing the completed activities by August 4th, 2024.

ANNOUNCEMENT - Ten schools will receive GSA Mini-grants in 2024-2025


Ten schools have been selected to receive OSSCC mini-grants this school year. Schools
are planning a variety of things to support their LGBTQ+ students.

 

THE MINI-GRANT APPLICATION FORM CAN BE FOUND AND SUBMITTED HERE AT THIS LINK.
