Diversity of Thought in Sustainability (DOTS) Grant

This recently initiated grant offers up to $1,000 for groups to develop projects around the University campus that improve social sustainability including topics of equity, social justice, placemaking, and human rights, among others. We encourage students applying for this grant to consider how their group or project defines social sustainability and/or to consider how the environmental movements at the university could invest in creating more diverse, equitable, and inclusive spaces.
