Apply for a Carbon Fund Grant

How to Apply for a 2017-2018 Carbon Fund Grant:

1. Review the Applicant Guide and Information Session PowerPoint (How To Apply)

2. Submit an Abstract. Clicking "submit an abstract" will link you to the application. Download the application to your computer from the google doc as a word document. ALL applicants must submit an abstract to the Carbon Fund Committee. Small projects requesting less than $5,000 will only have to submit an abstract in the fall. If you are asking for more than $5,000, submit an abstract, and we will ask you to come back in the winter to fill out a supplemental application. Not all applicants will be invited to submit a supplemental application in winter.  Please submit completed abstracts to carbon@ucsc.edu as a PDF by November 17th. You will need to embed the following materials into your application:

If your project is requesting more than $5,000: 

3. Submit a Supplemental Application: Supplemental Applications are due January 19th by 11:59 pm. Final decisions will be made within 2-3 weeks from the application due date. Please submit the application as a PDF by emailing it to carbon@ucsc.edu. Projects that submit a supplemental application are projects requesting greater than $5,000

Note: If the committee feels that they need more information about your project before funds are granted, then you will be asked to meet with the committee for a short  interview.

To assist you in determining your project's carbon footprint, you can use the "Clean Air- Cool Planet's" carbon footprint calculator.  Please note that all projects must still complete the Carbon Fund's calculator and submit it with their application.
