Penn's Green Fund welcomes ideas from students, faculty, and staff about ways to improve the University's environmental performance. Proposed projects must support goals and objectives outlined in Penn's Climate Action Plan, a long-range strategy launched in 2009 and updated in 2014 to reduce the University's carbon footprint.

There is no minimum amount required to submit a Green Fund application. However, the maximum grant amount is $30,000. It is also strongly recommended that all prospective applicants read the program FAQs before submitting an application. Grant applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year and are reviewed by the Green Fund Review Board at their monthly meetings.
