Applying for Green Funding

The Rhodes University Green Fund (RUGF) is a ring-fenced fund to be used at RU to change practices that reduce the ecological footprint of the University, and which enhance the sustainability of the University and its sustainable development activities at university and community level.

Guidelines: Application for Project Funds

Apply for a RU Green Fund grant as follows:

For Small Project Grant Applications (proposals requesting R2,500 or less), the LOI constitutes the full proposal . 

If a LOI requesting more than R2,500 is recommended for a possible grant award, the applicant will be notified and invited to submit a full project proposal. This is considered a ‘large’ project. To apply for funds for a large project that has initial approval:

Applicants may request funding up to R8/10,000. However, applicants should keep in mind that the aim is to create a diversified portfolio of grantees and projects to best meet the RUGF objectives. A project requesting a grant from the RUGF is required to both demonstrate environmental benefits and project sustainability.

  • Evaluation of the Large Project Grant request will be based on the criteria as outlined in the RUGF Large Project Grant Evaluation: RUGF Large Project Evaluation
