How You Apply for a Grant

 

The Aggie Green Fund Advisory Committee welcomes and encourages all students, faculty, and staff with a great sustainability idea to apply and get their idea funded. Below you will find all the information needed to transform your idea into reality.

The Aggie Green Fund offers two types of grants: Major Grants and Micro-Grants. Regular grants undergo a two-stage application process and are approved once per year. Micro-grants are approved through a separate application process that is open in the Fall and Spring semesters. Applicants are encouraged to review all applicable information before beginning the application process.

How You Apply for a Micro-Grant

Micro-grant applications are limited to projects $1,500 or less. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis September 15 through March 31. Approvals are generally granted within 30 days of grant application unless they are submitted in December or February, in which case they are generally granted within 45 days. Upon receipt of funds, micro-grant projects must be completed within six months.
