The LGBTQIA+ Healthy Norms Promotion Grant Program

The LGBTQIA+ Healthy Norms Promotion Grant Program provides grants of up to $2,000 to student groups in order to prevent sexual assault and other forms of sexual violence within LGBTQIA+ student communities on campus. 

 

The goal of the LGBTQIA+ Healthy Norms Promotion Grant Program is to prevent sexual violence among LGBTQIA+ students by: 

  • Supporting University of Minnesota student groups to develop and implement a project that uplifts positive behaviors, attitudes, and knowledge related to sexual violence prevention within LGBTQIA+ student communities; and 
  • Engaging students to promote positive norms among their peers related to healthy relationships, affirmative consent practices, inclusive spaces, or respective communication.

 

Grantees will identify a positive social norm related to sexual violence prevention within their peer group and promote it through either 1) a small group program, such as a workshop, discussion series, or event; or 2) a social norms marketing campaign.  Program staff will support them in developing, implementing, and evaluating their project. 

 

The LGBTQIA+ Healthy Norms Promotion Grant Program is now accepting applications from interested student groups! Two $2,000 grants will be awarded to informal or formal student groups who will work to prevent sexual violence within LGBTQIA+ student communities. Applications are due Monday, October 10, 2022 at 10:00 PM CST. For more information, visit https://z.umn.edu/LGBTQIAHealthyNormsGrant.
