Green Fee CommitteeGreen Fee Logo

A student majority Green Fee Committee (GFC) has been established to solicit, review and award funds for environmental service related projects on campus. The green fee will be collected with tuition beginning in Fall 2011 through Summer, 2016. The green fee is $5.00 per long semester and $2.50 for the summer session.

Please use this site to learn more about the history of the green fee [pdf], timeline and upcoming deadlines, the GFC structure and by-laws [pdf], how you can participate as a GFC member, and how you can submit a proposal for green fee funding.

There are no grants currently available for 2016-2017. Look for information in Summer and Fall 2016 about committee membership and the next grant cycle. In the meantime, please email greenfee@austin.utexas.edu with any questions about the program.
