The SAF Grant Program provides funding to innovative, student-driven projects focused on promoting experiential learning opportunities and sustainable practices at Western Washington University. Students, staff and faculty are all eligible to apply for grant funding. Projects funded through the SAF Grant Program aim to:


  • Increase Student Involvement and Education
  • Reduce Western Washington University's Environmental Impact
  • Create an Aware & Engaged Campus Community
