Grant Programs

The Sustainability Office initiates and supports collaborative research, study, and action on sustainability related topics both on and off-campus. Funding is available for students under a mini-grant program.

For Students: Student Action Research (SAR) Grants

Student Action Research (SAR) grants allow students to apply for mini-grants in support of sustainability research and action initiatives both on and off-campus. Conference registration and travel expenses, summer research, and other relevant professional development opportunities qualify for funding eligibility (priority in this category will go to students either majoring or minoring in Environmental Studies). Students may also jointly apply in small groups for specific sustainability projects on campus.311832_243230409067989_1822950531_n _0
