Kappa Delta, creator of the Confidence Coalition, offers Confidence U grants to colleges and universities to develop confidence-building programming and awareness initiatives for women on their campuses. Grants of up to $5,000 are awarded to ten campuses to help women find “the Confidence In U.”

The grants provide needed funding for colleges and universities to address one or more issues that affect women on their campuses. Programming can include workshops, speakers, special presentations, awareness campaigns, etc. We encourage you to use your creativity to develop a program that meets the needs of women on your particular campus. This is your chance to truly make an impact in the lives of women and influence your campus culture.

As part of Confidence U, Kappa Delta also presents a special award of $1,000 to one college Panhellenic representative or university leader who is making a strong and visible difference in the lives of women on his/her campus. Before completing your application, please read the guidelines thoroughly and review the timeline below.
