Any individual (whether faculty, staff, or student) or group (for example, student organization, school, academic program, or administrative or auxiliary unit) within the W&M community may submit a proposal for Green Fee project funding. All student-led projects are required to maintain an advisor for the duration of the project.
The W&M Committee on Sustainability (COS) accepts Green Fee proposals every semester. Projects awarded grants by the COS range greatly in size and subject, featuring research, community events and outreach, resource saving initiatives, wellness programs and much more.
Spring 2021 Green Fee
This year the Green Fee awards will be mini-grants, up to $5,000. All proposal purchases must be approved by the applicant's (or in the case of students, advisor's) office/department prior to submission. The applicant's office/department will be responsible for making the project's purchases.
Spring 2021 Deadlines
- Open Call for Spring (and Summer Research) Proposals: January 27
- Last Day to Submit a Spring (or Summer Research) Proposal: March 9 @ 5pm
All projects receiving funding should clearly identify the Green Fee as a source of support. Due to the variety of projects covered through the Green Fee, this identification may take different forms. If unsure of the best way to recognize the funding source on a project, please consult the Director of Sustainability.
For additional information, please see the Green Fee Policy.
All questions regarding Green Fee should be sent to Office of Sustainability at [[sustain]].
All applications will be reviewed by the Committee on Sustainability in a timely manner.
All proposals must be submitted via Qualtrics.
