ECOllective Student Project Committee

What:  Each student pays a Green Fee of $10 per semester to the ECOllective Fund that supports projects and initiatives that contribute to sustainability at the College of Charleston. A portion of the ECOllective Fund is set aside specifically to fund student-proposed projects that educate the campus community, encourage positive action for society and the environment, provide research data, and promote collaboration of various academic disciplines. This funding is administered by the ECOllective Student Project Committee (ESPC), which is composed entirely by members of the student body. To take advantage of this funding, students have the opportunity to work collaboratively with ESPC to complete the application process and make their sustainability project a reality here on campus. If you are a CofC student with an idea for a student-led project or event that will make our campus more sustainable, please apply.

There are two levels of funding that you can receive from this program. Full-Scale Projects can receive up to $5000 in funding, and smaller, Expedited Projects can receive up to $500 in funding and operate on rolling submissions all semester.

To Apply: The Spring 2018 deadline for Full-Scale Projects is March 15th. For more detailed information on the application process, go to the program’s website.
