The newly established Green Fund is a $50,000 pool of grant funding uniquely designed to catalyze UChicago student engagement in campus sustainability. Established by the Campus & Student Life and the student-led UChicago Environmental Alliance (UCEA), the Green Fund provides financial support for student-led research or projects aimed at directly improving the University’s environmental footprint. The Green Fund will be a pilot program for the 2020-21 academic year and begin its first application cycle Autumn Quarter 2020. We welcome you to join Dean Rasmussen and members of UCEA for a Green Fund informational session on Thursday, May 7th from 6 to 7 CST via Zoom to hear more about the Green Fund’s goals and application process.
