Timeline for the 2022-23 Application Process

  • Application opens April 15th, 2022.
  • By October 1st, 2022 at 11:59pm, interested parties will submit the initial idea submission form.
  • The Green Fund committee reviews all the proposals for duplicates, redundancy, and any unattainable ideas (e.g. putting a wind turbine on a building that has known structural issues). The committee will vote on whether to advance each project to the next round of the application process.
  • All proposed projects are posted to this website for public viewing.
  • By October 20th, applicants will know whether their project is advancing to the next round. Applicants may be asked clarifying questions or provided with feedback to help refine their idea.
  • Applicants that are asked to submit answers to clarifying questions from the selection committee must do so by October 22nd at 11:59pm EST. The committee will then vote on whether each project will advance to the next stage. The next stage includes submitting a detailed revised project proposal.
  • All projects invited to submit a revised proposal must complete and submit them by November 18th at 11:59pm.
  • Ideas that are chosen to move to the final stage will be notified by December 1st. Between this and the final stage, the committee may ask further clarifying questions.
  • Those selected to advance to the final stage will be asked to present their project in front of the committee and the Tufts Community in early December.
  • Depending on the funding requested, one or more finalists will be selected. All funding decisions will be made by the mid-December.
