Bright Green Future Grants is a competitive program that provides funding for school-based sustainability projects up to $3,000. Applications for the program are accepted each year starting in mid-August through September.

The program was designed to recognize and support innovative projects that will inspire students to become lifelong environmental stewards. Projects like composting systems, rainwater harvesting, organic gardens, rain gardens, bicycle academies, and wildlife habitats are identified by local educators and through campus EcoAudits. Projects that are selected to receive funding actively engage students and members of the community with hands-on involvement and learning.
