Student Sustainability Grant

The Student Sustainability Grant is available to all students who pay the sustainability fee. Any proposal that promotes a campus culture of sustainability and potentially benefits all students is eligible. Proposals must be safe, legal, adequately budgeted, and possible within existing University infrastructure to qualify. Selection is through a blind-review process by student peers.
