The Lalor Foundation is accepting applications for programs designed to educate young women about human reproduction in order to broaden and enhance their options in life.
Through its Anna Lalor Burdick Program, the foundation seeks to empower young women through education about healthy reproduction. The program focuses in particular on young women who have inadequate access to information regarding sexual and reproductive health, including comprehensive and unbiased information on contraception and pregnancy termination.
Grants of up to $35,000 will be awarded in support of programs for young women, particularly those who are disadvantaged by poverty, discrimination, geographic isolation, lack of specific sex education, hostile public policy, or other factors leading to inadequate reproductive health. Areas of interest include programs that include a comprehensive approach to sexual and reproductive health education; novel ideas, including innovative methods of delivering information; and programs that incorporate advocacy or policy change.
To be eligible, applicants must be tax exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code.
Concept papers must be received no later than November 1. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
See the Lalor Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
