Executive Vice President Tallman Trask has committed $50,000 to fund student, staff and faculty led initiatives which will "green" Duke. So far, the fund has sponsored an environmental assessment of Duke's office product usage and a conference entitled "The Power of Environmental Purchasing: Greening the University Supply Chain" which resulted in Duke adopting comprehensive Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Guidelines.

Rules for Grant Applications:

  • grants are for projects or activities that will reduce the environmental impact of Duke's campus or health system
  • students, faculty, staff and alumni or any organization comprised of students, faculty, staff or alumni may apply for a grant
  • grants can be used for educational purposes if it is clear that the education will lead to a reduction in Duke's environmental impact

  • the grant application process is a rolling one. Applications are considered as they are submitted.
  • $50,000 is the total grant money available each school year. It may be a good idea to contact Duke's environmental sustainability coordinator before submitting an application to learn how much has already been disbursed.
