In 2007 your Student Legislative Council (SLC) first approved the Students’ Union (SU) Sustainability Policy. It was recently reviewed by the SU Committee on Sustainability Initiatives and an updated version was approved in 2013. Through the SU Quality Money program, the SU Sustainability Fund is designed to provide the necessary capital required to support projects that promote and support sustainability on campus. Any current University of Calgary (U of C) undergraduate student can access this fund by proposing a project idea.
Applications for the 2016/17 SU Sustainability Fund are now available. The deadline for this year is Wednesday Feb. 15 at 4 p.m. Please read the guidelines carefully prior to submission. Only complete applications will be reviewed.
Sustainability Fund grants are intended for on-campus projects that work on inspiring, creative, and impactful environmental projects at the U of C. More specifically the fund is designed to:
- Encourage student involvement in sustainable practices and initiatives at the U of C
- Provide financial support for dynamic, innovative student-led sustainability projects
- To generate information and ideas to accelerate sustainable practices at the U of C
