The MakerLab has partnered with the Brandeis Office of Sustainability to offer micro-grants and technical support for Brandeis community members who want to have a positive impact on the environment. Open to students, staff, and faculty, the micro-grants (up to $500 each) can be used for materials or equipment for projects that will have environmental benefits on a local, regional, or global scale. The MakerLab is deeply committed to stewarding this planet which sustains us, and we’re excited to launch this program in concert with Brandeis’s Year of Climate Action. Especially encouraged will be projects that support regenerative or circular economies, ecological restoration, or climate mitigation and resilience. To apply, please go to to submit a brief project proposal, including a budget/Bill of Materials. For questions or support applying, please email
