The Washington State University (WSU) ASWSU Environmental Sustainability Alliance (ESA) with assistance from the Environmental Science Club created the Cougar Green Fund to provide resources for student sustainability projects.
During registration each semester students have an option to donate $5 as a student fee to contribute to the Student Cougar Green Fund. WSU students can submit project and funding proposals for research, education, and outreach to enhance waste management, green buildings, organic agriculture/food supply, transportation systems, water and energy conservation, and other sustainability programs at WSU.
The WSU Sustainability and Environment Committee (SEC) reviews the student Cougar Green Fund proposals and determines if the projects are accepted. The SEC includes student, faculty and staff representation.
