Grants can be combined with other funding, as long as the other funding source allows.  Grants will typically not exceed $3,000.
Recipients of the EcoFeminist Grant must submit a brief report upon completion of the project detailing how this grant enhanced their project, accomplishments and how the funds were used.
 
Eligibility:  Undergraduates who will be rising juniors or rising seniors by the start date of the grant (Summer 2017) are eligible to apply.  Students should have an FGSS background, but need not be majors. Notification of the grant award will be made in April 2017.

Ecofeminism, Eco-Grief, and Climate Justice: A Conversation With Heidi Hutner

ecoJosh Nodiff ’19 writes in:

Come join Dr. Heidi Hutner, Associate Dean and Director of Sustainability Studies at Stony Brook University, in a conversation
about ecofeminism, eco-grief, and climate justice! A longtime environmental activist and writer, Dr. Hutner will be addressing the dangerous Algonquin Pipeline and Indian Point power plant, as well as nuclear issues, fracking, and climate justice at large. Dr. Hutner will also facilitate an interactive workshop in which students can discuss and further their own activism at Wesleyan, as well as collaborate to build an intercollegiate coalition for climate justice. The discussion and workshop are open to everybody on campus!

This event, which coincides with the 30-year anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, is sponsored by Fossil Fuel Divest, Veg Out, and the United Student/Labor Action Coalition.
