Application Cycles

The Green Initiative Fund (TGIF) application cycles run according to the academic calendar.

Applications for year-long grants are due in March of each spring semester. The grant period for year-long grants begins the following academic year in September when the project budget is approved by the Undergraduate Student Government (USG) and the College Association (CA).

Students may also submit applications for the early-bird deadline in October of each fall semester. The grant period for projects funded during this application cycle is typically the spring semester of the same academic year. In some cases, year-long grants are granted during the early application cycle and begin the following academic year.

The early application deadline in October is also an opportunity for students to work with TGIF staff and the Grant Making Committee (GMC) to build their grant application and receive constructive feedback for the March deadline.
