Applying for Funding

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 between $500 and $3,000 are offered throughout the academic year with several deadlines (see below). These smaller grants aim to give funds to individuals hoping to make a quicker impact.

Annual grant proposals support projects with budgets greater than $3,000.These are considered by the committee once per year with a deadline in late February and are typically projects that have longer timelines.

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.

Mini Grants

The Green Fund Committee has issued a call for Mini-Grant proposals for at least $500 and up to $3,000 for the 2017-18 academic year, with the following deadlines for the spring semester:

Proposals submitted by these deadlines will be reviewed by the Green Fund committee at their next weekly meeting.
