ECOllective Student Project Committee (ESPC)

Each semester, students pay $10 as a Green Tax as part of their tuition that will end up in a large fund to be governed by the ECOllective Student Project Committee (ESPC), a committee headed by an intern at the Office of Sustainability.

Students from any major can apply for a grant through ESPC for up to $5,000 to be used for any sustainability-related initiative, such as research, implementation of sustainable equipment, or expenses related to event planning. Grants are approved or denied by a committee of 5-9 students from multiple backgrounds. Duties include attending meetings regularly, providing feedback to the committee chair, serving as a case manager to help proposers through the grant writing process, and communicating via email with other committee members.

We are currently accepting applications for both grant proposals and committee members. This committee meets once or twice a month, depending on the volume of proposals, and turns over in the spring semester. This is a great opportunity to add both grant writing and professional experience to your resume as well as get your foot in the door at the Office of Sustainability.

For more information, please visit the Office of Sustainability’s website or contact Trevor Leach at
