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.
The application can be edited once it has been submitted.
The deadline to apply is December 4th, 2023
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, response times are slow as we are an all-volunteer committee.
