Vanderbilt Green Fund application deadline extended!!

Posted in NEWS on Thursday, October 18th, 2012

The Vanderbilt Green Fund was established in the spring of 2011 as a way of connecting student sustainability ideas with the means to implement them. We are looking for ideas that are both visible and educational in nature. Past projects awarded have involved solar panels, light sensors, and shower timers. Applications for projects will be due on November 25th at 5 pm.
