Our new Quick Fund Awards process allows faculty and students to apply for small grants (less than $1000) that will support experiential learning in the same semester (or the break just before the semester begins). Please read the Quick Fund Application Guide for more info about this process, and submit projects as early as possible to ensure funding source is secured.
In the summer of 2011, the Mason administration approved the creation of the Patriot Green Fund (PGF), which is a $100,000 per year sustainability fund that is devoted to making Mason's campuses more sustainable through facility improvements and student research projects.
One of the most unique and innovative components of the PGF is the emphasis it places on student participation. Students not only comprise the majority of the PGF Committee, but can also directly apply for funding to lead their own projects when supported by a mentor.
This site provides details about the fund's eligibility, application process, and deadlines. In addition there is extensive information on the fund's origin, the PGF Committee and its incredible members and current and past PGF projects. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Committee.
