Hi Weylin -- thanks for starting this project. You're right that LGBTQ+ students face disproportionate levels of bullying. It's a terrible injustice, and we're glad you raised your hand to work on it.

How can we help you get started? Do you have a team of students to help you out? Do you have an idea of what you'd like to do to change things? If not, that's OK -- we can help you brainstorm!

Hi Weylin,

We wanted to let you know that we are extending the deadline for active projects to apply for a Mini-Grant during this Peace First Challenge to April 15th. You can apply for a mini-grant anytime, but meeting the Challenge deadlines will make you eligible for additional opportunities.

If you do not require a mini-grant to complete your project, you can remain eligible for the Accelerator by completing your project and Reflection before the May 31st deadline! If you submit your project plan by April 15th, we'll be sure to provide you with feedback by April 21st to support you with carrying out the plan.

If you are still in early stages of planning, you are also welcome to apply for a mini-grant at a later date -- although you may not be eligible for some of our larger opportunities, the opportunity for funding and support is always there.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and if we can help in any way!

Best,
Adrian
