The Campus Sustainability Fund provides UVic staff, faculty and students financial assistance to carry out sustainability initiatives on campus. Projects could address raising awareness about sustainability, providing learning opportunities in the field, or direct impact projects looking to reduce water and energy consumption.

The purpose of the fund is to encourage sustainable solutions, which encompass the vision of the Sustainability Action Plan by including a wide range of UVic community members and ideas.

Projects less than $1000 are accepted on a rolling-basis. For projects over $1000, the next application deadline is February 15th, 2021. 

Sustainability Projects

Sustainability projects further the Sustainability Action Plan and advance leadership in sustainability. They do not need to provide a direct financial payback to the university. 

Revolving Sustainability Loan Fund

Energy and water projects fall under the Revolving Sustainability Loan Fund, which funds projects that provide a return on investment.
