The Sustainability Office initiates and supports collaborative research, study, and action on sustainability related topics both on and off-campus. Funding is available for students under a mini-grant program.
For Students: Student Action Research (SAR) Grants
Student Action Research (SAR) grants allow students to apply for mini-grants in support of sustainability research and action initiatives both on and off-campus. Conference registration and travel expenses, summer research, and other relevant professional development opportunities qualify for funding eligibility. Students may also jointly apply in small groups for specific sustainability projects on campus.
SAR Grants are typically awarded an average of $500.
Examples of previously funded SAR Grants:
-Bioneers conference attendance
-Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) conference attendance
-The creation of a solar laptop charging station on campus
