Student Chapter Project Grants
Animal Legal Defense Fund’s student chapters can apply for funding to support their animal law projects that advance our mission and travel to animal law events. Events like the annual Animal Law Conference are wonderful educational and networking opportunities for students interested in animal law.
Please read the Student Chapter Project Grant Guidelines (PDF) before applying for a grant.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are not promoting or funding in-person events during fall 2020. Please check out our Student Chapter Program Guide: Organizing for Animals in the Digital Age which has ideas for online events and projects.
