YUSU's Sustainable Development Grant

Interested in starting a sustainability project but need some funding? YUSU's Sustainable Development Grant may be able to help.

The Sustainable Development Grant, launched by YUSU in 2022, is available to fund student-led sustainability projects using the University's 20p Latte Levy. It funds projects that are aimed at improving sustainability at York and uses the  (SDGs) as its criteria, so as long as the project lines up with at least one of these, it will be considered.

The funding bands range from £50 - £1000, however more expensive projects will be considered if you can demonstrate the need for it. Applications are accepted every semester.
