The Global Heritage Endowment is a new source of funding established specifically for undergraduate students. The fund is derived from royalties paid to Dr. Kaufman, the author of “Biosphere 2000: Protecting Our Global Environment” (Harper-Collins, New York, 1993) published with the help of about 300 students. It is the sincere hope of the founders that the endowment will be a lasting testimony to the creative potential of undergraduate students. The Miami University Foundation Global Heritage Endowment awards grants on a competitive basis to enable undergraduate students in North America to undertake environmental projects.

Eligibility: Candidates eligible for awards are undergraduate students enrolled full-time at a North American university. Eligible for consideration are any applications for well conceived, carefully planned projects that will a) improve the local environment; b) raise awareness of environmental issues; or c) add to the collective understanding of the environment.

Application Deadlines: December 15th. Awards are announced the following Earth Day.
