The Sustainability Initiative Grant at FLC accepts applications every spring semester for projects that advance a more sustainable campus.

Sustainability is a part of our FLC core values and culture. We define sustainability as the collaborative action of meeting the needs of current and future generations of humans and ecosystems through conservation, regenerative use of resources, action for social justice, and attention to a vibrant economy.

The Sustainability Initiative Grant supports projects that enhance sustainability within academics and research, the physical campus and its structures, student leadership and campus culture, and planning and administration. See what has been funded in the past.
