The OU Office of Sustainability is offering an opportunity for the Ohio University campus community to host sustainability programming during Earth Month 2013 (April) through their mini-grant program.
Students, faculty, and staff can apply for grants up to $500 to host a program during Earth Month that furthers the goals of the Sustainability Plan and educates the campus on sustainability. The Office of Sustainability is working to build sustainability leaders and provide diverse educational opportunities throughout campus with the implementation of this new program.
"We ran a pilot of this program last April for Earth Month and were really pleased with the student, faculty and staff excitement," said Annie Laurie Cadmus, Director of Sustainability. "Our student staff has done a great deal of work since then refining the program so we can implement it again this April."
Applications will be accepted January 7 – March 4 and must be submitted at least 5 weeks prior to the date of the proposed program. All applicants must be associated with the institution and have affiliation with an academic or administrative unit so as to facilitate funding. Applicants from any of OU's campuses are encouraged to apply.
Details of the Earth Month Mini Grant application process are now available online.
