Dialogue Grant Program

Main content start


The Office for Inclusion, Belonging and Intergroup Communication (IBIC) offers grants to students, staff, or faculty members who seek to carry out a project that centers diversity, inclusion, belonging and equity (DIBE) through intergroup communication. The Dialogue Grant Program prioritizes funding for projects that create spaces for authentic and vulnerable connection, where diverse experiences and identities can be explored. 

Maximum grant award is $300 for a single applicant and $500 for two or more people applying as a group.

Project Guidelines

  • Projects must benefit a group — whether it’s your club members, a group of friends, or the general public, there must be multiple people participating in/learning from your project.
  • Projects must involve some opportunity to dialogue and learn from one another. A project relying solely on a one way transfer of knowledge (i.e. a lecture or presentation) will not be accepted.
  • Projects must explore topics related to identity, diversity, inclusion, belonging and/or equity.  
  • Projects should relate their topic matter to the lived experiences of Stanford community members. 
  • Projects should be led by Stanford community members – projects focused solely on external speakers/presenters will not be accepted.

The deadline for fall applications is Wednesday, November 16th, 11:59pm. Learn more about how to apply.
