The USA Volleyball Molten Diversity Grant is intended to serve and give special emphasis to those groups or communities that are most in need. This will include programs that give special attention to sectors of the population known to be underserved or underrepresented by current volleyball programs due to gender, race or ethnicity, disadvantaged economic situation, geographic location, and physical or developmental disability.

History: The Molten Diversity Grant was initiated by Molten USA in 2004 with the intention of increasing diversity in the sport of volleyball. In partnership with USA Volleyball, the program officially began in 2005. Grants range from $500 to $1,000.

Timeline: Proposals are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis and may be granted anytime during the year until funds no longer remain. Due to the number of requests anticipated, it generally takes several weeks before the Commission takes action on the application.

Apply: The USA Volleyball Molten Diversity grant will be available to non-profit organizations rather than individuals. All grant applications and inquiries must be submitted to USA Volleyball. Please send an electronic copy of your inquiry to
