In 2017, The Ohio State University and Ohio State Energy Partners (OSEP) entered into a comprehensive energy management partnership, launching an unprecedented energy efficiency program and establishing the university as an international leader in sustainability.

As part of its commitment to academic collaboration, OSEP will contribute $810,000 annually to the university or affiliated philanthropic causes. Working with OSEP, the Office of Academic Affairs will engage Ohio State faculty, staff and students through a request for proposals to advance important university priorities and promote interdisciplinary and community collaboration.

Through Jan. 29, 2021, applications will be accepted for the annual OSEP awards. Projects should promote interdisciplinary and community collaboration, and priority will be given to the following areas: sustainability, leadership development and arts/humanities. Faculty, staff and students are eligible to apply.
