Apply for a 2021 campus grant

Grant applications are now being accepted for 1 for All’s spring and fall 2021 campus-outreach program.


1 for All is the nation’s longest-running program building public awareness of the amendment that keeps us free – the First Amendment. It’s a nonpartisan and nonprofit campaign to boost understanding of our freedoms of speech, press, assembly, religion and petition – on college campuses, in high schools and across the country.

Grants from 1 for All

The Free Speech Center underwrites First Amendment events and projects on college campuses throughout the country. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted that outreach, but we’re offering a new opportunity.

The Free Speech Center is offering up to $1,000 per campus to present a First Amendment discussion, lecture or event via Zoom. All we ask is that the Zoom event help advance understanding of one or more First Amendment freedoms and be open to the entire campus, and, if possible, the public.

To submit a 1 for All proposal for a $1,000 Zoom-event grant, please do the following:

Submit your proposed plan via email to Matthew Taylor, 1 for All grants coordinator.

1 for All is a project of the Free Speech Center at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro. For more information, see About 1 for All.
