Submit Proposals for Spring 2015 Green Fee Projects! (Deadline November 14th)

The University of Memphis Green Fee Committee is seeking proposals from students, faculty, staff, and academic or administrative departments. This is an additional solicitation for proposals to what will occur in February 2015. This allocation period is a result of a surplus in Green Fee dollars after allocations have been made for the Fiscal Year 15 (Fall 14-Spring 15).

Details for submitting proposals and ideas for 2014-2015:

 · We will entertain proposals only for projects that can be completed by June 30, 2015. Projects that will go into the next academic year (beginning July 1, 2015) should be submitted with the February proposal solicitation.

 · We will award up to $50,000 in Green Fee projects. The number of supported projects will depend on the number of applications that meet our guidelines and are in line with Green Fee Committee priorities/interests.

 · Currently funded projects may request additional funds. The provision of additional funds will be based on demonstrated need and disparity of budget from previously provided allocation.


The person(s) and/or department submitting a proposal must be capable of managing the funds in a university account and actually carrying out what is needed to fulfill an accepted proposal.  The Green Fee Committee will review proposals and make recommendations to the president of the university on allocation of the Green Fee funds. Hearings for proposals will occur sometime after November 10th and occur on a rolling basis until the end of the semester. However, November 14th is the deadline!
