2013 Project Awards

(12/13 Academic Year)

In the second year of the Patriot Green Fund, projects again were not only building a foundation for sustainable campus operations, but began to branch out in to smaller student research projects. In 2012, the PGF Committee agreed to begin awarding smaller projects with a shorter review process in order to enable professors and students to obtain funding for projects occurring within the same semester. These projects are capped at $1500.
