Scholarships & Grants
Empowering Young People and Communities to Make a Positive Difference
Herren Project is pleased to be able to offer college scholarships and school grants to students and high schools nationwide. Individuals and communities that apply should be sharing the message of substance use prevention and wellness as well as committed to making a difference.
Herren Project awards two $1,000 college scholarships to high school seniors each year. This leadership scholarship will be awarded to individuals showing exemplary passion and commitment in preventing the misuse of substances, spreading the message of wellness and/or empowering their peers to take steps towards happier, healthier lives.
After-Prom & Graduation Grant
Herren Project is proud to support schools and communities grants for safe, substance-free events to celebrate prom and graduation. These high school grants range from $500-$2,000. They help cover costs of after-prom and after-graduation parties that encourage healthy choices and inspire substance-free fun.

The winner will receive a $500 scholarship.
