The Student Sustainability Committee has begun accepting applications for student-led project funding.

From the Student Sustainability Committee website:
"The Student Sustainability Committee is a group of 12 students dedicated to improving the sustainability at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. With the help of 10 faculty and staff that serve as member-advisors, we meet to review and vote on what projects receive funding and check in on those projects that have already received funding. Using two student fees, Sustainable Campus Environment Fee and the Cleaner Energy Technologies Fee, we review submitted projects and distribute funding to projects that we deem to be most beneficial to the University of Illinois. Both of these student fee revenues bring in over $1.1 million annually, which is one of the largest sustainability fund of its kind in the United States. Students, faculty, and staff are welcome to apply for funding.
Eligible projects must fit within the funding guidelines and criteria. Potential applicants are encouraged to meet with the committee’s working groups to discuss project ideas. We review submitted projects once per semester and the project applications are due at the beginning of each semester. Deadlines vary, please check the application section for more specific dates. Over 100 projects have been funded through the committee since its start, 10 years ago. If you are interested in learning more about the current committee or how to join please contact the committee."
