Diversity Grant

The Foundation's newest community outreach initiative is the Diversity Grant, which supports educational, community service, or outreach projects or programs with a diversity focus that involve FBA Chapter, Section, Division, or member participation. Interested groups are encouraged to apply.

The proposed project or program must be focused upon the elimination of bias or the promotion of diversity. Diversity refers to all manner of diversity, including race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or any other unique attribute. It is strongly suggested that the project or program contain an education component.

Currently, the maximum Foundation of the Federal Bar Association grant amount is $10,000. The number of grants funded and the amount of each grant is dependent upon the available funding and the number and quality of applications. The Foundation of the Federal Bar Association reserves the right to make the final decision on all applications.

Grant applications are accepted twice during the Foundation’s fiscal year and processed according to the following schedule:
