Environmental Sustainability Fund
In February 2012, a $5 per term ($15/year) Sustainability Fee was approved by the students and the Board of Trustees to establish the LUCC Sustainability Fund. All project proposals must be for infrastructural changes, defined as physical facilities or installations contributing to the operation of the university, that have a positive financial return of better than twelve years. Students can apply for the Environmental Project Fund through the Sustainability Steering Committee approval process. Questions? Contact the committee here.
By encouraging students to build real-world skills while helping Lawrence achieve its sustainability goals, the Student Sustainability Fund promotes merging academics and campus operations to create a living laboratory. This fund offers students competitive grants of up to $2,500 for projects that may consist of research, internships, volunteer or service projects, class projects, or student group initiatives. Priority will be given to projects that have a sustainability outcome for the campus, or utilize the campus as a living laboratory. The Student Sustainability Fund will be accepting applications each term through Summer of 2020.
To be considered for approval, students must complete an application for funds and identify a faculty or staff advisor to help track the progress of the project.
It is highly recommended that students set up a project planning appointment with the Sustainability Coordinator prior to completing an application. This will allow for a more informed committee discussion and prompt decision.
The Sustainability Steering Committee will review student proposals three times per term (week 3, week 5, week 7).
