  2. Submit your project proposal (application [pdf]) to mtier1@swarthmore.edu.

Your proposal could be rejected at this stage, you could be asked to make proposal changes, or it could be selected for further review by all members of the full Sustainability Committee. If selected for further review, the Sustainability Committee may invite you to attend a committee meeting to discuss your proposal and/or may suggest changes to your proposal.
  4. The Sustainability Committee will select projects for funding periodically throughout the calendar year and until all funding for the calendar year has been allocated.
