The new Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF) is pleased to launch its inaugural call for proposals! Building on the past successes of the University of Arizona Green Fund, the Campus Sustainability Fund will provide funding to support large- and small-scale sustainability projects that build a more sustainable, equitable, and resilient future for the University of Arizona.

As part of this inaugural call, the CSF will begin accepting applications for small, “mini grant” projects in amounts of up to $7,500 for Fall 2021! All members of the campus community are invited to submit proposals that align with the University’s sustainability - environmental and social - goals. More information on the Fund, including our interim eligibility and evaluation criteria, can be found at Proposals should be submitted via our Google Form found at We strongly encourage proposals from students!

Only applications that include thorough and thoughtful responses will be considered. 

Proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis with applications received by the following dates reviewed and voted on within two weeks:
