The Green Initiative Funding Tomorrow (GIFT) Grant Committee is now taking applications for new members. This Committee, founded by Student Council in the Spring of 2011, was formed to enable and empower students to take an active role in ensuring UVa’s commitment to a sustainable future. Equipped with a $30,000 budget, the Committee distributes funds to sustainability projects or initiatives in a manner that adheres to the goal of maximizing environmental benefit at the least financial cost, and establishing UVa as leader in environmental sustainability.
