The University of Lincoln Student Green Fund is the perfect opportunity for students to gain valuable, real world, skills; and do something of value for the environment and local community.
With up to £250 supporting funds available, we’re giving students the chance to design, develop, and implement an environment related project – or use one of the pre-thought out projects below – and implement it!
You can work on your own or in a group – but, it’s more fun with more people!
To apply – complete the application form below.
Real world skills could include:
- Writing a business case
- Managing a budget
- Project management
- Time management
- Event management
- Team work
- Sustainability in the work place
- Design and creativity
- Campaign building
All we ask is that you give us a brief outline of what you want to achieve, how you want to achieve it and any projected costs. The brief will then be assessed by our Student Green Fund committee – and further questions will be asked if needed.
