Applying for Funding

During the 2017-18 academic year the Green Fund Committee seeks to provide financial support to a number of projects and programs advancing sustainability, equity, and social justice at Willamette University and in our community.

Students, staff and faculty are invited to develop and submit mini-grant and annual grant proposals. Mini-grants of at least $500 and up to $3,000 are offered throughout the academic year with several deadlines (see below), while annual grant proposals with budgets greater than $3,000 are considered by the committee once per year with a deadline in late February.

When developing proposals we strongly encourage students to work with staff and/or faculty, and to consult with the non-voting members of the Green Fund Committee.
