Speaker Series GrantQVA seeks to provide financial support for student groups attempting to bring LGBTQ+ leaders onto Grounds. These include leaders in politics, literature, film, art, history, and more. This fund will ensure that quickly getting reasonable funding isn’t a roadblock to providing students on Grounds, LGBTQ+ and otherwise, with an external perspective on these LGBTQ+ topics.
Current students and student groups can request funding for speakers.
Awarded funds will be disbursed as quickly and efficiently as possible to allow for flexible event planning. For questions about the grant application, or in cases of unexpected and urgent financial need, please email
Grant Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis and decisions are expected ~1-2 weeks after application submission.
