University students, faculty, staff, alumni or members of the San Marcos Community may apply for funding for a project, improvement or event. The Environmental Service Committee is to distribute funds collected from the Environmental Service Fee in order to provide funding for environmental improvements at the University through services such as environmental education, recycling, transportation, employment, product purchasing, distributing small grants or matching funds, planning/maintenance, beautification, and irrigation. The Environmental Service Committee, however, is not to use the revenue from the fee to reduce or replace other money allocated by the University for existing projects.
Applications will be considered and reviewed throughout the semester. Applications submitted later in the spring semester may be approved but funding may not be available until the following fiscal year (Sept. 1).
