Women’s Sports Foundation Accepting Applications for Homophobia in Sport Project Grant Program

Deadline: Open

The Women’s Sports Foundation (<a href="http://womenssportsfoundation.org/">http://womenssportsfoundation.org/</a>), a charitable educational organization dedicated to ensuring equal access to participation and leadership opportunities for all girls and women in sports and fitness, is accepting proposals for its Homophobia in Sport Project Grant program, which is designed to provide for the development of research, community outreach, and educational programs addressing the issue of homophobia and other barriers to women’s participation in sports.

Any bona fide researcher, local, regional, or direct action outreach organization committed to providing opportunities to girls and women in sports and fitness is eligible to apply. Currently funds are only being administered to meet the needs of individuals and/or organizations addressing homophobia-related issues requiring immediate action such as employment, community health and safety, etc.

Grants of up to $5,000 will be awarded to qualifying organizations.

Applications will be accepted on a continuous basis in 2004. To download complete guidelines and/or an application form, visit the Women’s Sports Foundation Web site.
