A brief description of the program(s):

Sustainability Teaching Grants Program: In collaboration with the Graduate School and the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Office of Sustainability carries out the Sustainability Teaching Grants Program. This course development program is a competitive funding initiative that provides USF instructors with financial and research support to design and implement new research-based courses dealing with issues in social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Since sustainability can only be achieved through communities of educated citizen scientists and activists, courses that include a service-learning component will be given preference.

Each year, up to four successful proposals will be funded up to $1500 each.
