About the Green Fund at UWO

The Green Fund is a student-run committee funded through students’ segregated fees (appx $3/student/semester) for student projects for sustainable initiatives. Last year the the bicycle FixIt stations by Reeve and the Rec Center were part of the first project approved by the Green Fund to increase cycling on campus. This year there is $60,000 available to students for projects that promote sustainability on campus. Projects can be anything related to sustainability from social justice & climate change to landscaping & food movements, or even business related projects. Proposals can be written by an individual or student group and will be accepted through Friday, January 22nd. If you or your group would like more information, or have an idea for a project come see us in the Oviatt House (Room 201). All it takes to submit a proposal is to fill out an application online and email it to In Spring semester, after we have received all of the proposals for the year, everyone that submitted a proposal will have a chance to present it to the Green Fund committee. Once all of the proposals have been presented, the committee votes on which projects to fund and how much to give them.

We’re here to help at every step of the process from working out your ideas to organizing the project and filling out the application. For questions, more information, or to talk about an idea please email
