The Student Sustainability Initiative is now accepting grant applications for student projects pursued during the 2011-2012 school year. There is $26,000 available in grants this year, and a single project may apply for up to $6,000 dollars. Projects which support student efforts to create a sustainable community at OSU through opportunity, education, and action are more likely to be funded.
To apply for a grant you must be a currently enrolled OSU student and intend to use the grant money to support sustainability efforts in the OSU community.
Previously funded projects include:
Composting projects at student co-op’s and academic departments, green roof demonstration sites, OSU’s permaculture class, the OSU Solar Vehicle team, a conference on Earth Democracy, and student gardening projects.
Applications are due November 20, 2010. You can access grant applications and guidelines online by clicking here. After completion, applications are to be sent to SSI Fee Board Chair, Justin Russell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You do not have to submit a letter of interest. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask Justin.
This is an great opportunity to contribute to sustainability at OSU!
