Renewable Energy and Sustianability Grant Fund
The Renewable Energy and Sustainability Grant Fund was created by Linfield students in Spring 2009. The refferendum first passed through the student senate and then through a student body vote on May 11th, 2009, generating approximately $30,000 annually to support renewable energy and sustianbility projects on campus. Half of the fund is earmarked for local renewable energy projects, such as solar power, while the other half is available to fund Linfield community sustainability initiatives through a grant process that is open to all Linfield communiy members.
In its initial year, the Renewable Energy and Sustainability Grant Fund supported five student projects: The Linfield Bike Co-op, the Linfield Community Garden, a composting pilot program, the Alternative Spring Break Program titled The Northwest Sustainability Challenge and the creatiion of a sustainable bike structure on campus. For more information see SGF Grant Recipients.
The fund was originally managed by the campus Sustianability Committee (ACES) in 2009-10 and is now managed by a student-led Sustainability Council. To apply for a grant, please download an application and submit it to the Sustainability Council at email@example.com.
