Center Staff Awarded Aggie Green Fund Micro-Grant

May 5, 2022

The Center staff, Dr. Jacqueline Turner, Tanya Baker, Jessica Dees and Aimee Day, were awarded a micro-grant from the Aggie Green Fund to replace the water fountain on the 6th floor of Harrington Tower with a Bottle Filling Water Station. Once the water station is installed they will be promoting the bottle filling station by rewarding someone each month with an insulated reusable bottle.

The Aggie Green Fund is a grant-making organization for sustainability projects at Texas A&M College Station campus, Texas A&M Higher Education Center at McAllen, and Texas A&M University School of Law. It offers Major Grants on an annual basis and Micro-Grants on a rolling basis to empower students, faculty, and staff to take action and bring creative environmental improvements to our campus. Since its launch in 2011, the Aggie Green Fund has awarded approximately $2.1 million to over 90 projects.

Projects are reviewed and selected by the Aggie Green Fund Advisory Committee. Any Texas A&M University student, staff member, or faculty may submit a project application. Projects must directly address sustainability on the Texas A&M campus, may not primarily address research aims, and must have publicity, education, and outreach considerations. The Aggie Green Fund is intended for environmental projects that are not already funded by Texas A&M University. Preference is given to projects that demonstrate the greatest reduction in Texas A&M University's environmental impact in a cost-effective manner and/or to projects with strong student involvement. Any Texas A&M University student, staff member, or faculty member may submit a project application.
