SERC and TGIF Eco Fund

Thank you for your interest in TGIF + SERC’s Eco Fund. The Eco Fund awards small stipends to student leaders and students whose work connects to environmental justice and environmentalism. This Spring, we are accepting funding requests from 2/8/2023 – 4/31/2023.

We award small stipends to students leading projects that incorporate environmentalism, sustainability, and/or environmental justice in their events. These stipends can cover the cost of food, venue fees, books/materials, travel costs, and speaker stipends. The Eco Fund also awards stipends to students that are enrolled in environmental courses and need support accessing course materials (including but not limited to textbooks, calculators, software, etc.).

In the 2021-2022 school year, the Eco Fund dispersed $9,242.44 to 47 students and student leaders for requests covering costs ranging from a bag of soil, music fundraising festivals, binoculars, to textbooks. Please note, we have a soft cap of $300 for requests. Applications will be reviewed biweekly at 12 PM every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month. We aim to notify applicants of their application status within 2 weeks of submission.

TO APPLY: Fill out our google form application. All instructions and details are listed on the form. (Due to institutional delays, funding will take around 6 weeks to reach you after your application is submitted.)
