Student Groups

Student Group Funding

The Program in the Environment has funds available to declared PitE students who are participating in a conference or activity.

Awarding Criteria: The decision to award funds will be based on the following criteria:

  1. How well activity/event relates to and enhances PitE’s mission
  2. Percentage of PitE students in the group

Group funding can be used towards the following expenses:

  • Conference Registration
  • Travel (e.g. gas money)
  • Lodging (e.g. hotel costs)
  • Food
  • Facilities or Equipment rental costs

Funding requests will only be considered for declared PitE concentrators or minors. The activity, conference or event should relate to the study of the environment and PitE’s mission.

PitE’s Mission

“…to develop environmentally informed citizens and leaders through an undergraduate program that balances rigorous environmental studies in many disciplines, hones practical problem-solving skills, and fosters intellectual risk taking.”

All applications will be reviewed on a monthly basis, and students will be notified within two weeks of the application submission. Applications are due the second Friday of each month (unless otherwise noted via email or website). 

Please return completed application and supporting materials to PitE (1120 USB) by the 2nd Friday of the month. Students will be notified 2 weeks after submitting the application. Please email your questions to environment.funding@umich.edu.
