Students, Staff, Faculty: Got ideas for “green” projects?
Apply now for a Green Fund grant. Penn’s Green Fund is designed to seed innovative ideas from Penn students, faculty, and staff with one-time grants of as much as $50,000.
Proposed projects must support goals and objectives outlined in Penn’s Climate Action Plan, a long-range strategy launched in 2009 to reduce the University’s carbon footprint and enhance its overall sustainability.
Recent Green Fund grants have gone to:
- Bike repair stations on campus
- Composting food waste from cafes at the Penn Museum
- Installation of shower timers in Hill College House and the Quad
- Site-level monitoring of stormwater management and a number of other environmental performance indicators at Shoemaker Green
The Green Fund deadline for the Fall 2013 semester is 5pm on October 31st. Download the application form.
