Have an Idea for a Project?
We’re winding down for this current (2017/18) school year, but feel free to contact us to get started on writing a grant next year! We’d love to help you get started.
Western students, staff, and faculty members are eligible to apply for a Sustainable Equity and Justice Fund grant. Individuals or organizations outside of Western Washington University should look elsewhere for funding opportunities.
