Ohio State Sustainability Fund Available for Campus Projects

The Ohio State University is committed to developing durable solutions to the challenges of sustainability and in evolving a culture of sustainability through collaborative teaching, pioneering research, comprehensive outreach, and innovative operations, practices, and policies.

To support this commitment, the Ohio State Sustainability Fund is available to faculty and staff members to provide funding for sustainability projects that will positively impact any Ohio State campus. Sustainability Fund projects must promote sustainability by advancing current programs, creating campus cultural change, and/or directing sustainable campus policy or project development. Projects that create sustainability awareness, encourage behavioral changes, and promote outreach to the campus community and beyond are also desirable.

Projects eligible for Sustainability Fund awards must be led by a faculty or staff member and must contribute to sustainability; provide campus impact; not be covered by an existing university operating budget; and be used to seed, catalyze, or gap-fill funding on projects, rather than be the sole funding source.

Details and application forms are found on the President and Provost’s Council on Sustainability webpage, under “Involvement.” To apply for funding, complete the Sustainability Fund Application and send it to mailto:energy.environment@osu.edu.
