The Green Initiative Fund, or GIF, is a grant offered through UISG & GPSG for student organizations that have projects on their agenda that overall promote sustainable or green practices and outcomes. The process of selection is outlined below, and the criteria is listed on the application.
The Green Initiatives Fund Committee will meet regularly to award funds to organizations. Organizations can submit the application on a rolling basis.
When funds are awarded, the committee will send organizations an award letter through e-mail. The Student Organization Business Office will be aware of the e-mail and of the organization’s permission to use funds.
When student organizations spend the funds, they will need to provide the GIF Committee co-chairs copies of their receipts. This will allow UISG to authorize the reimbursements SOBO provides from the GIF account.
Past projects include:
Compostable Materials for a Zero Waste Event
Milk Weed Planting on the Westside of Campus
Sustainability Conference Attendance
Programming for the Culinary Ride
Sustainable Clothing Magazine
Garden at Lakeside Laboratory
Solar Car Competition
