The Resilience and Compassion Seed Grants were created in partnership with the UW Resilience Lab and the Campus Sustainability Fund (CSF). Seed grants provide up to $5,000 in funding to the beginning stages of projects that aim to have a positive impact on the sustainability, compassion, and resiliency of the UW and greater Seattle communities. These grants can be awarded to UW students, staff, and instructors across the three UW campuses.  

Together, the Resilience Lab and Campus Sustainability Fund aim to foster connectedness, cultivate compassion towards each other and ourselves, embrace diversity, highlight personal connections to sustainability, spark dialogue about environmental justice, and provide opportunities for applied-learning among the UW community. Projects that support these shared goals are encouraged to apply. Past projects have ranged from workshops and retreats to activities and funding for applied research. 

More information on past projects and the application can be found on the UW Resilience Lab website or at The applications for the 2023-2024 seed grant cycle opened on March 27. 2023 and will close on April 30, 2023.
