The Aggie Green Fund is a grant-making organization for sustainability projects at Texas A&M University. It offers Major Grants on an annual basis and Micro-Grants on a rolling basis to empower students, faculty, and staff to take action and bring creative environmental improvements to our campus. Since its launch in 2011, the Aggie Green Fund has awarded approximately $1.7 million to over 60 projects.
Projects are reviewed and selected by the Aggie Green Fund Advisory Committee, a group composed of a student majority along with staff and faculty members. Any Texas A&M University student, staff member, or faculty may submit a project application. Projects must directly address sustainability on the Texas A&M campus, may not primarily address research aims, and must have publicity, education, and outreach considerations. The Aggie Green Fund is intended for environmental projects that are not already funded by Texas A&M University. Preference will be given to projects that demonstrate the greatest reduction in Texas A&M University’s environmental impact in a cost effective manner and/or to projects with strong student involvement.
