Are you a student organization that promotes sustainability? Then you might qualify for funding from UISG & GPSG Green Initiative Funding.
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 on the first Sunday of every month starting on October 6, 2013 to award funds to organizations. Organizations must submit an application form by the Friday before that first Sunday before 5PM CST.
- When funds are awarded, the committee will need to send orgs 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 both aid in UISG’s April review of the pilot program, and will allow UISG to authorize the reimbursements SOBO provides from the GIF account.
If you think your student organization may be eligible, see the application here. Please send your completed form or questions to UISG Sustainability Liaison Shelby Cain at firstname.lastname@example.org.
