Student-Led Project Opportunities
A primary goal of the ASMSU Sustainability Center is to support student-led projects which enhance sustainability or sustainability awareness at MSU. We offer students a variety of ways to demonstrate their leadership and vision on sustainability issues and are here to support you!

The Center provides small grants to students (individuals or organizations) to aid them in the implementation of projects/events which enhance sustainability or sustainability awareness at MSU. Projects will be selected on the basis of capacity to enhance the university’s sustainability efforts and/or raise awareness, visibility, and participation in those efforts. Of primary interest are projects that leverage, enhance, or build upon existing campus efforts/campaigns. To apply, please review the program overview and complete an application.

Internships & Independent Study
The ASMSU Sustainability Center is available to work with students on interships and independent study projects (for stipend, credit, or both) in areas consistent with our mission. This is a great way to enhance your education while contributing to meaningful change on campus! Research project topics may be suggested by the applicant, or selected from a list of interest areas and ongoing projects we have already identified (see our Student Projects List for ideas).
Projects receiving academic credit as an internship or independent study must be approved by a faculty sponsor, who will also be responsible for recording your grade. If you cannot find a faculty sponor in your home department, we can provide faculty contacts in Political Science and University Studies who have expressed interest in sponsoring student sustainability projects.
A limited number of Project Stipends are also available from the Sustainability Center each year. Stipends may be up to $1000/semester, for a 8-10hr/week time commitment, and are awarded based on the quality of the proposal and our current funding priorities. Having a faculty mentor/sponsor is highly recommended. Grants for projects may also be available from other campus sources, such as the Undergraduate Scholars Program.
To develop an internship or independent study project with the Sustainability Center, please contact the Director to discuss your interests, current opportunities, and necessary application procedures.
