Sustainability Fee Program

The Georgia College Sustainability Fee Program was initiated in 2010 to develop collaborative research between students, staff and faculty that will make our campus more sustainable and promote sustainable practices in our community. Each semester, students contribute $5 to support this fee. This fee allows Georgia College student researchers an opportunity to develop effective strategies for improving the environmental sustainability of our campus and local community. The Program Director and Assistant Directors review student /student organization proposals to implement and evaluate sustainability practices.

Mentors for writing proposals are available to help clarify the process and encourage strong submissions. The best proposals are collaborative efforts of students, staff and faculty, and include written support from all affected parties. Proposals that address the strategic directives of the GC Sustainability Council are favored, as are those that will leave a lasting legacy of sustainability on campus.

Sustainability Fee Grant Proposal Procedures

Sustainability Fee Grants are offered throughout the year, allowing students to collaborate with staff and faculty during a course project to develop their proposal. Proposals with a research component are strongly encouraged. The grant proposal procedure requires a cover form identifying collaborators, a two-page research proposal, and a budget sheet.
