A brief description of the institution’s sustainability projects fund:

The Aggie Green Fund is a grant-making organization for sustainability projects at Texas A&M University. It offers Major Grants on an annual basis and Micro-Grants on a rolling basis to empower students, faculty, and staff to take action and bring creative environmental improvements to our campus. Since its launch in 2011, the Aggie Green Fund has awarded approximately $2.1 million to over 90 projects.


A brief description of the multi-stakeholder decision-making process used to determine which projects receive funding through the sustainability projects fund:

Projects are reviewed and selected by the Aggie Green Fund Advisory Committee. Any Texas A&M University student, staff member, or faculty may submit a project application. Projects must directly address sustainability on the Texas A&M campus, may not primarily address research aims, and must have publicity, education, and outreach considerations. The Aggie Green Fund is intended for environmental projects that are not already funded by Texas A&M University. Preference will be given to projects that demonstrate the greatest reduction in Texas A&M University’s environmental impact in a cost-effective manner and/or to projects with strong student involvement. Any Texas A&M University student, staff member, or faculty member may submit a project application.
