UGA students awarded more than $40,000 in sustainability grants

Students at the University of Georgia are reimagining sustainability and enhancing equity through pilot projects on campus.

The UGA Office of Sustainability awarded more than $40,000 to support 13 interdisciplinary student projects that will be implemented in spring 2021. Funded by the student Green Fee, the annual Campus Sustainability Grants program is available to all UGA students and invites project proposals that advance sustainability through education, research, service and campus operations. Successful projects address UGA’s strategic priorities and integrate social, environmental and economic solutions to help ensure that all people can thrive, both now and in the future.

During the last 11 years, $370,000 has been awarded to support 102 student-led projects on campus and in the community.
