2017 - 2018 Campus Sexual Assault Grant Program

Application open Thursday, August 31Thursday, October 19, 2017


The Campus Sexual Assault Grant Program is now accepting applications from public and non-public Michigan colleges and universities to help support ongoing efforts to reduce sexual assaults on campuses across Michigan.

This is the third round of grants after First Lady Sue Snyder and Michigan State Police Director Col. Kriste Kibbey Etue announced the program in June 2015 following the First Lady’s “Inform. Empower. Prevent. Let’s End Campus Sexual Assault” summit. Governor Snyder recommended and the Michigan Legislature appropriated $500,000 from the FY 2016 General Fund to support the grant program. An additional $500,000 to support the program was authorized for FY 2017, and has been renewed again for FY 2018 for $600,000.

I encourage all Michigan colleges and universities to apply for this grant to develop new strategies to help keep our students safer on campus.
— First Lady Sue Snyder
