Measure 43 grants available to UC Santa Cruz undergraduates

December 02, 2021


The UC Santa Cruz Center for Agroecology is soliciting grant applications from UCSC undergraduate students for fiscal year 2021-2022 education and research projects. The Center for Agroecology administers UCSC's Measure 43 funding to support a host of programs and opportunities for students at UCSC, including education and research grants.

Measure 43 will ensure that all undergraduate students have access to education and programs that enhance their understanding of the food system and their food choices, and that increase opportunities for classes, workshops, “learning journeys,” hands-on gardening experiences, and other campus activities. For more information on on the scope of activities supported by Measure 43 funding, please visit

Selections are based on project relevancy within the Measure 43 funding focus (i.e., food system education and outreach events/programs, campus garden efforts, and student food system undergraduate research), the degree of consultation and inclusion of relevant faculty, administration, and staff, and having a clear and easily implemented work plan, timeline, and budget. 

To qualify, applicants must be currently enrolled UC Santa Cruz undergraduates and meet additional qualifications specified on the grant application. Applications are due on Monday, January 10, 2021 by 5pm. Questions can be directed to the grant review committee by contacting the staff coordinator, Tim Galarneau, at
