Apply to the Sustainability Projects Fund
Step 1: Verify project eligibility
Any member of the McGill Community (Staff, Students, Faculty, and Admin) who would like to increase sustainability on campus are eligible, and are encouraged to apply to the SPF.
The Fund is responsible for a diverse portfolio of projects, and funds a wide range of sustainability initiatives. Sustainability in this sense can have many meanings, such as, Finance, Academics, Community, Food, Water, Materials, Health and Wellness, Energy, Land, and Social Justice. All of the current SPF projects can be found here.
Step 2: Fill out the application
Aprozimately one week after receiving your application, you should here preliminary feedback from the McGill Office of Sustainability. The purpose of such feedback is to optimize the application before sending it to the Working Group who will ultimately make a decision of whether or not the project can be funded at this time. For a better understanding of the Working Group's own process, see this diagram.
Once your projet has been approved by the Working Group (up to 2.5 months after the application), the project leader will be notified. In order for the Sustainability Projects Fund to properly present the various initiatives run on campus and the efforts of all of those working towards a more sustainable community, each approved project is required to provide the following:
• A 140 character (tweetable) description of the project
• A one paragraph description of the SPF's role in your project
• Project photos/ videos
• Any additional project contact information (website, Facebook, Twitter)
Check out the Frequently Asked Questions for additional information.
Step 3: Upload your application
Download the template above, and upload your completed SPF Application to start the process.
