Sustain IU is looking for proposals for the Sustainability Innovation Fund, which builds and leverages existing Sustain IU capacity to generate productive sustainability solutions while welcoming new campus collaborators to participate.

Through a competitive process, the Innovation Fund catalyzes campus efforts that fulfill the following goals: create and fund at least one major innovation per year that measurably advances campus sustainability by using campus as a lab; improve IU Bloomington's score in at least one category of the AASHE STARS metric; provide high-impact learning experiences for students; make measurable progress toward one or more Bicentennial Strategic Plan goals; generate success stories to publish in university and public media to create opportunities for sustainability advancement and donor targets.

Letters of intent are due by 5 p.m. Jan. 11. Sustain IU staff will be available to meet with proposal teams Jan. 14 to 18 and Jan. 21 to 25. Full proposals are due by 5 p.m. March 4, and Innovation Fund projects will be announced at the Spring Sustainability Symposium on April 26.
