Students, faculty and staff of the UMass Lowell community are eligible to apply for the S.E.E.D. Fund to support projects that will advance the sustainability of the campus. Students submitting an application for a S.E.E.D. grant can do so on behalf of a student organization. To fund an individual project, a student applicant must have a faculty or staff advisor for their project.
When the application submission period closes, the S.E.E.D. Fund Committee reviews all applications throughout the month of March. Applicants are notified if their projects are awarded following the committee selection period, and S.E.E.D. Fund project winners are announced in April.
The S.E.E.D. Fund Selection Committee reviews project proposals based on the criteria and guiding questions outlined below. All criteria and guiding questions serve to support committee discussion of projects. High scoring projects are not guaranteed funding.
