Student Funding Opportunities
SIU Carbondale offers many funding opportunities to students for research, travel, and development of sustainable ideas. Below are a few resources that students should keep in mind when brainstorming for ways to make our campus and community greener and more sustainable.
Each year, the Sustainability Council partners with the Center for Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities to fund two sustainability-specific research, creativity, and scholarly project awards for undergraduate students.
In the past, students and student-led teams have competed for monetary awards for commercially-viable and technology-based ideas that provide a social and/or environmental impact. The Sustainability Council was a co-sponsor for the Saluki Idea Competition for two years.
