Sustainability Committee Seeks Proposals for High Meadows Funding


The Office of Sustainability has announced that it is seeking proposals in need of funding for sustainability projects on campus. The Princeton University High Meadows Sustainability Fund, made possible by a gift from Carl and Judy Ferenbach, was created to accelerate sustainability efforts in research, education and civic engagement on campus. The Princeton Sustainability Committee is responsible for allocating these funds over the course of a four-year term, starting in 2008. The proposals will be reviewed by the Academic Review and Civic Engagement Review panels of the Committee.

The Academic Review Panel will evaluate proposals that address: 1) course development, redesign, enhancement or support, 2) faculty research projects on sustainability-related topics; and 3) student-initiated research projects on sustainability-related topics. The Civic Engagement Review Panel will evaluate proposals that address: 1) student-led sustainability initiatives; 2) campus activities or programs; and 3) research projects aimed at increasing the operational sustainability of the University. Please review the “Request for Proposals” document on the website for more details.

All campus community members are eligible to apply. The fall deadline for applications is November 21. See the Office of Sustainability website for application materials and additional details. Call or email Shana Weber in the Office of Sustainability at 609-258-1518 or shanaw@princeton.edu with any questions.
