We recommend considering the following questions when developing mini and tier-one grant proposals:

  • Is there a need for your project on an ASU campus? 
  • What is the goal of your project, and who will it benefit? 
  • What are the objectives of your project? 
  • Which ASU sustainability goals do they support?
