Campus Sustainability Achievement Awards will be given to institutions that have made the greatest overall commitment to sustainability in their category, as demonstrated in their governance, academics, operations, and community outreach. Any college or university in the US and Canada may apply – there is no requirement for membership in AASHE. One award will be given in each of these categories:
1. Community colleges and other two-year institutions;
2. Four-year and graduate institutions under 1,000 student FTE
3. Four-year and graduate institutions with 1,001 – 10,000 student FTE
4. Four-year and graduate institutions over 10,000 student FTE

A Student Sustainability Achievement Award will be given to an undergraduate student from an AASHE member institution who has demonstrated outstanding leadership in promoting campus sustainability. The Award includes $750 in cash as well as free registration for the conference. Any undergraduate student enrolled at an AASHE member institution in the U.S. or Canada who has played a leadership role in implementing campus sustainability is eligible for this award.

Applications for both awards are due by August 18, 2006. For details please see <a href=""></a>
