The Patriot Green Fund- It's Revolutionary!

In the summer of 2011, the Mason administration approved the creation of the Patriot Green Fund (PGF), which is a $100,000 per year sustainability fund that is devoted to making Masonís campuses more sustainable through facility upgrades or installations and student research projects.

One of the most unique and innovative components of the PGF is the emphasis it places on student participation. Students not only comprise the majority of the PGF Committee, but can also directly apply for funding to lead their own projects when supported by a mentor.

This site provides details about the fund's application process and deadlines. In addition there is extensive information on the fundís origin, the PGF Committee and its incredible members and current and past PGF projects. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Committee.
