Frequently Asked Questions
Who Can Apply?
Any current BGSU undergraduate student, graduate student, or groups thereof from the main campus may apply for funding from the Student Green Initiative Fund.
What type of project will be funded?
The only requirement is that it is a “green” project. A “green” project is one that has as its purpose making BGSU more environmentally friendly, energy efficient, sustainable or a combination of all of these. Sustainability as used in this context means to allow everyone to live well while assuring that resources will not be diminished for future generations.
How much money can I request?
There is no real limit to the amount you can request, but you should consider that multiple applications for funds will likely be received, and the selection committee will endeavor to fund as many reasonable requests as possible. The amount of funds requested will not result in its outright rejection, as some partial funding decisions may be made by the selection committee.
How do I submit the application?
The application can be completed and submitted online. Or, a copy of the application can be printed and submitted to Dr. Nick Hennessy, Sustainability Coordinator, 107-B Campus Operations, BGSU.
When should I submit my application?
The committee making the selections meets regularly and will make funding decisions on a rolling basis as applications are received. Thus, there is no official deadline for submission; however the sooner an application is submitted, the sooner a decision can be made, and the funding processed if the project is selected.
