Sponsored by:

President’s Sustainability Commission

What’s your sustainability idea? Apply for funding here!

The CSU Sustainability Fund, sponsored by the President’s Sustainability Commission, was created to support sustainability efforts across Colorado State University.  Creativity is encouraged, but some suggestions include energy, water and other resource conservation efforts, academic initiatives, research projects and equipment/processes, education and outreach efforts, or other pilot and new grassroot sustainability initiatives.

  • Funding can be requested at any level up to $10,000 on single project proposals
  • Funding can be used for creative ways to enhance, support, or promote sustainability on campus
  • Projects must be related to sustainability efforts within CSU, but can be a collaboration with entities outside the University; however, the project must benefit the University
  • Funding is one-time (no ongoing and/or annual expenses)
  • Proposals may be submitted by CSU students or employees; students are required to have a CSU employee advisor/sponsor
  • Priority will be given to pilots/new initiatives and initiatives that are innovative and could lead to broader sustainability projects and impacts (scalability)
  • Priority will also be given to proposals that integrate social, economic, and environmental aspects of sustainability
  • Funding must be spent by the end of the fiscal year (June 30, 2021)

DEADLINE: Proposals received by November 18th, 2020 will be prioritized. If awarded, projects will receive funding in January 2021.
