Funding a sustainable campus:  UD community invited to apply for environmental project grants

The University of Delaware Sustainability Task Force invites the UD community to submit grant applications for projects that address sustainability issues.

The task force will be awarding $9,500 in grants to selected projects, with preference given to projects that are consistent with the goals of the University Climate Action Plan and the mission of the task force.

Faculty and staff created the University of Delaware Sustainability Fund (UDSF) to stimulate innovative opportunities to develop a more sustainable campus.

“The goal is to fund solid, well-thought-out projects that make the University community more sustainable,” said Jenny McDermott, chair of the UDSF working group. “Collaboration is strongly encouraged, and we like to see projects initiated by students.” (full article)
