Global Green Grant Application

Updated June 14, 2024

As part of Temple University Education Abroad’s commitment to helping students become global citizens and reducing the impact and carbon footprint of education abroad, we encourage students to apply for grants in the amount of $500, which will support student efforts focused on sustainability during their time abroad. These grants are co-sponsored by Temple University’s Office of Sustainability. All students studying abroad on Temple-run programs (both Temple and non-Temple students) are eligible to apply for this grant. For the Fall 2024 semester, the grants are open to students studying abroad at Temple Rome, Temple Japan, and Temple in Spain only.


Your Project

The form and scope of this sustainability work can vary broadly. If you are selected as a Global Green Grant recipient, we will work with you to develop a project that is aligned with your interests and the sustainability goals of your host program or campus. The project may involve undertaking research, planning an event, executing a project, etc. Please note that the grant may not be used to support personal travel, personal purchases, etc. 


Process and Requirements

Once accepted to your study abroad program, submit this sustainability grant application by the appropriate deadline listed below. Accepted grant recipients will meet regularly with an Education Abroad mentor to develop and implement their project. Prior to departure, grant recipients may be asked to attend an online orientation meeting, attend or watch a recorded a lecture on sustainability, and/or sign a commitment to sustainability practices abroad. Prior to the end of their semester abroad, grant recipients will deliver a reflection on their project, with guidance and approval from their Education Abroad mentor. Reflections may include a written statement (700-800 words) or video, which may be featured on the education abroad blog. The first $200 of the grant funds will be paid upon confirmation of receiving the award, and the remaining $300 will be paid upon completing the agreed-upon project deliverables.
