The Ohio State University is dedicated to advancing education, research, innovation and partnerships related to sustainability. To further these goals, the Sustainability Institute is pleased to offer funding to support student research or projects in sustainability.

Priority will be given to student research or projects that directly impact university operations; incorporate diversity, equity and inclusion themes; and/or connect to our communities and create opportunities to use our campuses as living laboratories.

The maximum award per application is $5,000, and the total funding available is $40,000 for the spring semester 2024 grant offering. Since the Sustainability Institute launched in 2019, it has awarded over $200,000 to over 50 student research and campus-as-lab projects through this grant program.

This award is open to all degree-seeking full-time undergraduate, graduate and professional students from any academic discipline or unit, in good academic standing, and with a graduation date of spring semester 2025 or after.

The application form and other required documents must be sent via email to Gina Jaquet, director, sustainability education and learning, by Friday, March 1, 2024 at 11:59 pm. Awards will be announced no later than Friday, April 26, 2024.
