GF stands for Green Fund, which is a fee referendum that will cost $3 per student per semester, raising up to $40,000 per year for campus sustainability projects.
These projects will help UTEP’s sustainability initiative and the environment* by:
*GF will NOT pay for anything the university is already required to do by law or policy.
The Green Fund Committee will oversee the funds. It will consist of five students, two administrators and one faculty member appointed annually.
To choose the projects, students, faculty or staff can submit proposals asking for funding, and the GF Grant Making Committee reviews the proposals and selects them based on The Green Fund Bylaws.
The GF Grant Making Committee will report all GF projects to the Student Government Association annually and the projects will be made available online.
