Green Fund Grant Proposals Due Jan. 29

The Green Fund Committee
January 23, 2018

Are you a student, staff or faculty member with a passion for the environment, and a commitment to keeping the UA as green as possible? Green Fund grants support sustainability-themed projects with the potential to make a real difference in the world. Anyone at the UA can apply for an annual Green Fund grant – faculty, staff or student – and there is no cap on the dollar amount requested. The Green Fund Committee is now accepting Annual Grant proposal applications through January 29th. Turn yours in today!

Green Fund projects encourage collaborations across the University and in the communities beyond, with an emphasis on student engagement. Notably, all grants are awarded by a committee of ten graduate and undergraduate students – so the decisions behind this $400,000 student-funded program are made by students. An additional $20,000 will be provided by the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice to fund projects that touch on the sustainability and social justice nexus.

Everything you need to know about the Green Fund, from how to apply to a complete history of all Green Fund projects supported to date, is available here. The committee also accepts applications for Green Fund Mini-Grants on a rolling basis. For more information about Mini-Grants, click here.

In order to encourage a more diverse applicant pool, the Green Fund Committee has made fundamental changes to its application process. These changes have streamlined the proposal process, making it more user-friendly and ultimately less time consuming, thereby encouraging additional campus participation.

Changes to the process include:

  • Annual grant pre-proposals have been eliminated;
  • Proposals are now limited to two (2) pages or less;
  • A rubric has been adopted to provide additional funding priorities (see attached).

Please contact Lauren White (laurenmwhite@email.arizona.edu) at the Office of Sustainability with any questions.

Apply now! 

Thank you,

The Green Fund Committee
