Are you a UIC student with an idea to make the campus more sustainable? The Sustainability Fee Advisory Board (SFAB) is currently accepting student proposals for Fall 2015. The Sustainability Fee's goal is to support student proposals that help to establish a sustainable campus environment. Paid by all undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, the $3 Sustainability Fee (per semester) funds small, short-term projects, and it helps to subsidize larger, long-term projects on campus. More information can be found here: http://go.uic.edu/sustainabilityfee
Who can apply: All UIC students and student organizations are eligible to apply. If needed, the SFAB will help provide access to campus resources and personnel to approved projects. SFAB can also suggest other entities that may provide funding or additional assistance.
Application process: Applicants are required to submit a Letter of Inquiry (LOI) by September 28th, 2015. The LOI allows the SFAB to pre-screen proposals for appropriateness and feasibility. Furthermore, the LOI should provide an approximate itemized project budget, including expected completion date and cost savings, if any. Projects that pass this stage will be invited to prepare a final proposal for consideration by the board. The Letter of Inquiry form can be found here: http://go.uic.edu/letterofinquiry. Following review of LOIs, the board will notify all applicants via email by mid-October if they have been selected to submit a full proposal. Full proposals must be submitted by November 16th 2015. Grantees will be notified by the end of the fall semester.
