Kless Sustainability Fund

The Kless Sustainability Fund  is a student-initiated, student-funded loan program that supports energy and resource conservation projects on the University of Montana campus. Each semester since Fall 2009, UM students have supported the Kless Sustainability Fund with an opt-out sustainability fee. The purpose of the Kless Fund is to finance projects that promote resource conservation, waste reduction, and environmental projects at UM, as well as capture financial and energy savings and foster student involvement in sustainability efforts.

Have an idea for a potential Kless Sustainability Fund project? Kless Sustainability Fund proposals are a great opportunity to develop grant writing and research experience and to learn more about the energy and resource footprint of the University of Montana!
