What is it?
The Student Sustainability Fund (SSF) is an annually allocated pot of general funds distributed to students by the leaders in the Student Sustainability Coalition.
The Student Sustainability Fund began in 2005, as a collaboration between the ASUO and the Office of Sustainability to provide funding to support student sustainability projects. In the first four years, the fund was managed by the Office of Sustainability. Since 2012, the SSC has facilitated the grant process. In total, the SSF has allocated over $260,000 toward projects all over campus that have enriched our community. Students have used the Fund to make big impacts that range from the installation of green infrastructure to unique opportunities for peer-to-peer education, awareness, and collaboration for sustainability.
