Requests for Funding

Looking for funding for an innovative project or event? The Office of Sustainability has funding available to support students!

To apply, the student or student group should create a funding proposal including: 

  • Justification for how the funds would support enrichment within the sustainability space.
  • A budget of how the funds are to be spent, including line items for event fees, travel, food expenses, required supplies, etc.
  • For groups: The names and email addresses  for all students attending the program. lf you are unable to provide names, please provide an approximate headcount. If approved for funding, you will be asked to provide the names and email addresses of attendees as soon as they become available. 

The funding proposal must be emailed to the Office of Sustainability (sustainability@swarthmore.edu) a minimum of two weeks before the funding is required. Also, please note that you may be asked to meet with one of our staff members to review the funding proposal. 

If you or your group receives funding through the Office of Sustainability, each attendee is expected to complete the Off-Campus Sustainability Program Refection Form within seven days of attending the program. If you do not fill out this reflection form, we may be less likely to approve future funding requests from you or your organization. 

If you have questions about this process, please email the Office of Sustainability or make an appointment with any of the members of our staff. Please note that the funds are limited and may be grated at a portion of the total requested, so we encourage students or groups with large requests to submit proposals promptly.
