SIU Green Fund Project


The SIU Green Fund Project Grant

Every current SIU student, faculty, staff, or campus unit is eligible to apply for a Green Fund project grant. Awards are currently being granted once a year by the Green Fund Committee, which is composed of one faculty member, one staff member, and the three student members of the Sustainability Council.

The Green Fund supports advancing sustainability on our campus through research, efficient design, energy and waste reduction, aesthetic upgrades, and education and outreach. Do you have a great sustainability project idea? Please consider applying to the Green Fund! Information on previously funded Green Fund projects can be found on our Green Funded Projects page. 

One funding round will be held in the 2018/19 academic year with the deadline March 1, 2019.

Green Fund workshops are held in the spring and the fall and they are a great way to learn about the green fund proposal process. All workshops have been completed for this funding round.

The workshops overview the Green Fund process, offer advice for strong proposals, and provide the opportunity for feedback on individual ideas. They are highly recommended. To receive Green Fund proposal support from PSO or other facility managers outside of the workshops, see the "Requesting Facility Support or Approval" tab on the FAQ page
