Deadline extended for Green Action Fund call for proposals

Submitted by Brian Niehoff

The Green Action Fund is still accepting proposals to fund for the spring 2019 semester from student groups and campus offices. The Green Action Fund provides an opportunity for the K-State campus to:

  • Fund needed projects that improve K-State's sustainability performance.
  • Enhance the student interaction with sustainability by making the K-State campus a living classroom.
  • Empower students through student-driven projects in sustainability by providing a source of funding, guidance, hands-on experience and networking.
  • Support the K-State 2025 strategic plan by weaving sustainability into all aspects of Kansas State University.

To be eligible for funding, projects must have direct student involvement or leadership, clear benefits for the K-State campus and students, and a campus department or unit partner to manage project funding. All proposals should comply to the Green Action Fund Proposal Guidelines.

Funding for the Green Action Fund is from the Student Governing Association through the Student Centered Tuition Enhancement fund. For a complete description of the fund, read the Kansas State University Green Action Fund charter and by-laws. The Green Action Fund committee is composed of students and faculty, and reports to the Center for Student Involvement on the use and impact of funds.

For more information or clarification of the Fund and funding process, contact the Office of Sustainability at sustainability@k-state.edu

To submit a proposal, see k-state.edu/sustainability/green_action_fund/gafguide.html for more information. All application forms should be submitted in electronic form to sustainability@k-state.edu. The deadline for receipt of the proposals has been extended to 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 8.
