Global Green Grant Application

Global Temple Conference

Mon, May 23, 2022

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 of up to $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 2023 semester, the grants are open to Temple Rome, Japan and Spain only.

2023-2024 Application

Your Project 

The form of this sustainability work can vary broadly. You may use the funds from this grant to undertake research, plan an event, attend a conference, execute a project, etc. The scope of this work may also vary according to your study abroad location and your interests. For example, you might tackle environmental impact, climate justice, economic development, etc., as long as there is a clear tie to sustainability. Use your creativity!

Process and Requirements

Your application should include a plan for how you intend to use the funds. Accepted grant recipients will meet regularly with an Education Abroad mentor to develop and implement their project.
