NYU Office of Sustainability Green Grants ProgramNYU Green Grants are awarded to improve the university’s operational environmental performance, foster environmental literacy and community engagement, advance applied research and design, and demonstrate the viability of best practices and technologies for sustainability. The Selection Committee awards grants for the most feasible, impactful, and innovative projects that have potential for institutionalization on campus or self-sustainment. Green Grants should explore one or more of the following categories:
Operations: Projects that pilot innovative ways to improve material, physical, or infrastructural elements at NYU, from food service to energy reduction.
Engagement: Activities that foster a campus culture of sustainability, such as efforts to improve environmental literacy and projects which stimulate behavior change.
Research and/or Design (including entrepreneurial ventures): These projects must be integrated with the university campus or community through use of NYU as a test-bed for data collection, or by producing deliverables with potential to catalyze operational, academic, or cultural change at NYU.
Academic: Projects which improve the university’s capacity for educating around sustainability, including curricular initiatives.
