BELLINGHAM – The Western Washington University Green Energy Fee Committee announced that it will fund eight campus projects. 

Three large projects, which range in funding from $9,000-$185,000, represent the second round of funding allocated to student, staff and faculty teams.

Each team spent a significant amount of time over the past year creating a conceptual proposal, preliminary design and estimate, and final proposal for the committee.  The five small projects, which range in funding from $500-$2,000, represent the first projects to be awarded in the grant program’s new Small Projects Pilot program. 

The Green Energy Fee (GEF) Grant Program exists to promote experiential learning opportunities and sustainable practices at Western Washington University.  The GEF is funded by Western students and managed by the Office of Sustainability. The grants were chosen by the Green Energy Fee Committee, which is composed of students, staff, and faculty representatives.

Western President Bruce Shepard will formally congratulate the teams at the Green Energy Fee Awards Ceremony & Expo at 4 p.m. May 30 on the Academic Instructional Center Skybridge.  The expo is open to the campus community and public. 

The committee acknowledged the hard work of the students, staff, and faculty on the development of this round of grant proposals.  The committee reviewed the grant proposals and decided to fund the following eight programs:
