5 Ways You Can Participate
Apply for a Grant
Once you have an idea, gather a team, and start researching the feasibility and logistics of your idea. Go to the Apply page for more information on the application process.
Join the SAF Committee
This is the student, staff and faculty committee that allocates funding for Sustainable Action Fund projects. The Committee has two student openings every year. Applications are due in May for serving on the Committee beginning in the fall. You can find the applications on the AS website.
The Sustainable Action Fund often has opportunities for students to help with project research, signage, or events. If you’re interested in being on our volunteer list, send an email to the SAF Education Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you have a really big project idea that needs some time to be developed? Sign up for the Campus Sustainability Planning Studio (CSPS) course through Huxley. This class revolves around forming a research team to help solve sustainability issues at Western and beyond. If you don’t have a SAF grant proposal idea now, you’ll be bound to come up with one once in class.
