The Sustainability Council is inviting proposals to support creative and innovative initiatives that help to infuse various aspects of sustainability into our college culture, curricula, operations, and physical environment. Three individual grants are awarded of up to $5,000 each.
The fund can support the development of a full range of potential sustainability efforts at FIT. These might include educational projects that inform our community about sustainability, scholarly research focused on sustainable issues, creative endeavors and projects, procedural changes to daily campus operations, new technology that impacts the campus in a positive and sustainable manner, new methods of operating the physical campus, or professional activities that support awareness of sustainability. “Sustainability,” for the purposes of this grant award, should relate to areas of social, environmental, and economic domains of human activities.
Grant proposals are due Monday, December 12. A Sustainability Grants Think Tank workshop will be held November 10 to help develop your ideas. For information on submitting a proposal, click here. For additional information, contact [email protected].
