Green Fee Board
Stay Connected during COVID-19
All in person events on the UAA campus may be cancelled due to statewide and local measures to contain the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) but that doesn't stop you from staying engaged with virtual events!
Since 2013, UAA's Green Fee has funded students' sustainable initiatives. Ranging from a recycling competition to a bike share, projects supported by the Green Fee Fund enrich the university community, advance sustainability, and develop students' skills.
Apply for Green Fee Funds
Any student at UAA who has paid the green fee is eligible to apply for a green fee fund grant.
About the Green Fee
The Green Fee was first approved by the student body in a 2011 referendum. USUAA later established the Green Fee Board, a team of community members - including three students-at-large, two members of student government, a faculty representative, and UAA's Director of Sustainability - tasked with evaluating proposals for Green Fee funding. The Board has developed a rigorous proposal process, ensuring that the Green Fee will only support projects demonstrating social responsibility, economic pragmatism, and environmental wisdom.
The Green Fee Board is composed of UAA students, faculty, and/or staff, and is tasked with ensuring responsible disbursement of Green Fee funds. Five of seven student seats are elected during USUAA General Elections in the fall and spring semesters. The two remaining seats are reserved for appointees of the USUAA Assembly. Additionally, two non-voting faculty or staff advisors serve on the board. To be considered on this board, please visit the USUAA Presidential Appointments webpage.
The Green Fee is paid by students attending the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA). The fee promotes sustainability efforts throughout the campus community by funding initiatives defined by environmental stewardship, economic pragmatism, and social responsibility. See detailed student fees and costs for specific fee amounts.
