Student projects to make UGA more sustainable

The UGA Office of Sustainability recently announced its newest sustainability grants on Wednesday, December 6. The grants were selected from a pool of 28 grant proposals submitted by students, among which 10 winners, selected by a panel of judges, will receive grants averaging $4,000 to complete or launch their projects.

Some of the project goals include protecting Monarch butterflies, returning bats to the UGA campus ecosystem, and growing medicinal herbs at the university’s UGArden.

The UGA Office of Sustainability has awarded $250,000 in grants up to now, funding 56 different projects. The Office’s goal is to get UGA closer to sustainability and carbon neutrality, and student projects have helped push UGA towards that goal.
