Green Grant Fund
Executive Vice President Tallman Trask has committed $50,000 to fund student, staff and faculty led initiatives which will "green" Duke. The fund has been used to put on conferences, conduct research, provide education and training, and seed new programs.
Rules for Grant Applications:
- Please apply early. Grants may take up to 30 days to process.
- Grants are for projects or activities that will reduce the environmental impact of Duke's campus or health system.
- Students, faculty, staff and alumni or any organization comprised of students, faculty, staff or alumni may apply for a grant.
- Grants can be used for educational purposes if it is clear that the education will lead to a reduction in Duke's environmental impact.
- Grants will not be made retroactively (i.e. to reimburse).
- The grant application process is a rolling one. Applications are considered as they are submitted.
- $50,000 is the total grant money available each school year. It is a good idea to contact Duke's Sustainability Outreach Coordinator before submitting an application to learn how much has already been disbursed.
- As of Fall 2010, a Green Grant Reporting Form must be submitted after the project is complete. Sustainable Duke will inform successful applicants about the deadline for this document after they receive funding.
