The REFUND program, formerly called the Renewable Energy Fund, is a student-administered grant program that funds projects designed to enhance sustainability and/or increase energy efficiency on the Northland College campus.
REFUND projects will be evaluated on the following criteria from the program goals and effects, based on how the project is able to:
- Enhance one or more spheres of sustainability;
- Address one or more of the College’s mission elements: liberal arts studies, the environment, enabling others, addressing challenges of the future;
- Contribute to energy education, reduction, renewability, and efficiency;
- Involve students;
- Create a continued and broad impact on campus.
Please complete the following application to apply for this year’s REFUND.
ReFund Letter of Interest
We are currently accepting REFund project letters of interest and will continue to do so until the year’s funds have been allocated. The first step in submitting your project is to provide a brief project letter of interest.
Use the text box below to describe your proposed project, how this project fits into the REFund project criteria above, and a preliminary list of staff/faculty support or other resources needed to complete the project. Alternatively, you may provide a written or physical copy of your project letter of interest to the sustainability grants manager in the NCSA Office located on the first floor of the Ponzio Campus Center.
