The Student Sustainability Fund offers competitive grants averaging $2,500 for sustainability projects that may consist of research, internships, volunteer or service projects, class projects, or student group initiatives. Applications for this fund will be accepted through Spring of 2021. Examples of projects include developing educational tools and programs for conservation efforts, researching the feasibility of a campus bike-share program, removal of invasive species on campus, funding for travel to and from an internship, a stipend for internships or service projects, etc. Priority will be given to projects that have a sustainability outcome for the campus or utilize the campus as a living laboratory.
To be considered for approval, students must complete an application for funds and identify a faculty or staff advisor to help track the progress of the project.
