The Student Sustainability Innovation Fund provides up to three rising Juniors or Seniors a financial award of $500 toward a project that supports student-centered programs of the Office of Sustainability or other innovations that will help KSC achieve its sustainability goals. Examples of projects could include new sustainability marketing and communications campaigns; student workshops or other educational outreach programs; theater, dance or music performances that address sustainability or climate change; science projects about water or ecosystem health – the options are endless, but we would like to make sure projects address topics of relevance to KSC.

Project proposals are vetted by the Office of Sustainability and the President's Council for a Sustainable Future.
