Student Green Initiative Fund
The Student Green Fund is a pool of money which is available for application by BGSU students to fund a variety of “green” and environmental projects on campus. During the spring semester of 2009, interested BGSU students met and determined there was an interest on the part of the student community to create a fund from an opt-out $5.00 per semester fee that would be used to finance environmental and “green” projects to help BGSU become more of a leader in the area of environmental sustainability. After obtaining the support of USG, GSS, other student organizations, and many signatures of students on petitions, a proposal was submitted to and approved by the Board of Trustees in June of 2009. Since January of 2010, the fund has been available for application green projects which are proposed by BGSU students. A committee of students reviews all applications for projects, making the selections for funding on a rolling, continuous basis.
Thank you for your interest in the Student Green Initiative Fund! The following pages provide information about how to complete and submit an application for funding for a project that will make BGSU an even “greener” place. We encourage your applications and hope that you will share this site and information about the fund with others.
