Successful projects will address UGA's strategic priorities and integrate social, environmental, and economic solutions to help ensure that all people can thrive, both now and in the future. Grants are awarded based on merit, positive impact, implementation feasibility, and available funding.

The selection committee is comprised of students, faculty and Office of Sustainability staff. These stakeholders judge grant applications and make their individual assessments. Then, the committee collectively makes final recommendations for projects to receive funding. The Office of Sustainability officially notifies accepted applicants through direct contact and a public announcement.
