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.
