DUE DATE: Planet Blue Student Innovation Fund Final Proposals

January 25

Website for More Information: http://sustainability.umich.edu/ssi/pbsif

The Planet Blue Student Innovation Fund (PBSIF) offers grants of $5,000 to $50,000 for student-initiated projects that promote environmental sustainability on the University of Michigan Campus. This fund encourages projects of a larger scale and impact than those covered by the Student Sustainability Initiative‘s small-scale grant funding.

Priority is given to projects that are of an innovative, visible, and transformative nature. Other criteria include factors such as student involvement and interest, economic payback, and partnerships facilitated within the U-M community of students, staff, and faculty.

In addition to the proposal criteria listed below, please follow the link to the application page which contains more specific information about the expectations for PBSIF and components that should be included in the final proposal. There is no page limit or specific format for the proposal, but should contain the aspects highlighted in the document.
