The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) is currently accepting project proposals for the 2022/2023 Academic Year. Don’t miss the chance to fund your campus green project. Applications are due on Friday, February 3rd, 2023.

TGIF is a student-governed grant supported by a $3.47 lock-in fee that every UCSB undergraduate and graduate student pays each quarter.  It raises over $170,000 per year to fund projects that reduce UCSB’s impact on the environment.  Any UCSB student, staff, or faculty member is eligible to apply for funding for their projects.  Ideal projects will show a quantifiable change (energy, waste, water reduction, etc.) while also educating the campus community.

If you have questions about your project idea, proposal guidelines or the selection process, please contact Jewel Persad at 893-8367 or

For more information on previously funded projects or to submit an application, please visit the TGIF web site.
