Graham Sustainability Institute

Grants from the Student Sustainability Coalition

SSC offers funding for student-led initiatives that further campus sustainability.

  • Planet Blue Student Innovation Fund (PBSIF) grants provide up to $50,000 annually for ambitious, student-initiated projects that reduce the university’s environmental footprint and promote a culture of sustainability on campus. We give priority to projects that are innovative, visible, and transformative. Other criteria include factors such as student involvement and interest, economic payback, and partnerships facilitated within the U-M community. Appliations for PBSIF funding will reopen in academic year 2021-2022. See past funded PBSIF projects.
  • Social and Environmental Sustainability Grants provide up to $2,500 in support of projects that advance DEI&J-focused sustainability on campus, including special events. Applications are accepted anytime and evaluated on a rolling basis.
