Our 2023 - 2024 Annual Grants are officially closed until Fall 2024. 

The Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF) is a unique and non-traditional grant program of the Office of Sustainability and offers two types of grant opportunities: Mini Grants and Annual Grants. Eligible project proposals are diverse and can include projects that focus on waste reduction, energy use, social justice, and other efforts that meaningfully advance environmental and social sustainability on campus. Grants are selected by the student members of the CSF Committee.
