Campus Sustainability Grants


Campus Sustainability Grants help make our campuses more sustainable.

Funded through energy savings from the University of Alberta Energy Management Program, students, staff and faculty can access these grants to make their ideas come to life.

Projects should use a campus-focused lens to improve operations and practices, advance the stewardship of our natural environment, conduct collaborative research in sustainability, encourage integrated and collaborative solutions to sustainability problems, or advance a culture of sustainability on our campuses.

Full details can be found in the Campus Sustainability Grant Guidelines.
