The University of Arizona Green Fund is a unique approach to
campus sustainability. Approved by the Board of Regents in 2010, the fund
allocates up to $400,000 each year to support projects that make the UA a more
sustainable place to live, work, and learn.
MINI GRANT funding for the remaining AY19/20 is canceled.
Through its Annual Grants and Mini Grant programs,
the Green Fund supports sustainability-related projects proposed by any member
of the UA community, and encourages collaborations between students, faculty,
and staff. The Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice provides additional funding via
the usual Annual Grant and Mini Grant funding process for projects that provide
socially just solutions to environmental problems.
Notably, all grants are awarded by a committee of ten graduate
and undergraduate students, which means the decisions behind this
student-funded program are made by students.
The submission period for Mini Grant Proposals will
begin in mid-September and ends in mid-April (or until funding is exhausted).
