SCHOLARSHIPS & GRANTS: The Herren Project’s Purple & Proud

The Purple and Proud Post Prom Grant was launched in 2014 to promote safe and substance-free after prom parties and events. The winning school will be awarded $2,000, while $1,000 will be awarded for 2nd place and $500 for 3rd place. The grant is open to high schools annually who host a prom or an after prom party promoting substance-free fun. The grant applications are submitted to a panel of Herren Project committee members for review with the names of the schools and organizations excluded from each application to ensure fairness within the selection process.

The Application process is now closed for 2017. Please check back  in early February 2018 to apply for the 2018 Purple and Proud! Post Prom Grant. Standing Up. Standing Together. Proud. Purple.

Please note: All schools who are awarded a grant are required to complete and submit a follow-up grant report including photos.


Thank you to all the schools who have participated in the Purple & Proud Grant Program, it is inspiring to see so many groups of dedicated volunteers working together to ensure a safe and memorable prom for high school students nationwide.
