TGIF offers two grant cycles per academic year. In September, our annual fall “mini-grant” grant program opens, providing up to $50,000 total for short-term projects. TGIF’s Spring grant program offers grants over $5,000 and continues to annually award over ~$400,000 to larger and more complex projects. All Environmental Justice proposals will be reviewed first by TGIF’s Committee in the selection process.
