The 2021 Sustainability Grant Offers Colleges and Universities the Opportunity to Earn a Club Car Vehicle to Advance Campus Sustainability Efforts and Reduce Carbon Emissions. 


AUGUSTA, Ga. (August 7, 2021) — Club Car®, a global leader in golf, consumer, and utility vehicles, today announced the launch of the 2021 Club Car Sustainability Grant. 2021 marks the third year for the Club Car Sustainability Grant as Club Car is proud to provide products and services to assist colleges and universities to reduce their carbon footprint through electrification of the on-campus fleet.

The 2021 Sustainability Grant program builds on the successes of the two previous Sustainability Grant winners, Cal State Fullerton and The College of Charleston, who have added zero-emission electric Club Car vehicles to their fleet.

The 2021 Club Car Sustainability Grant challenges decision-makers on college campuses to think critically about their vehicle emissions and fleet needs on campus. The majority of the world’s emissions can be attributed to the transportation sector and adding zero-emission electric vehicles (EVs) can help drive to a more sustainable future. Club Car is proud to help colleges and universities meet their ambitious sustainability goals.

“We are excited to launch the 2021 Club Car Sustainability Grant for the third year in a row,” said Kathryn Sterba, Higher Education Marketing Leader at Club Car. “The grant provides tangible solutions to add zero-emission vehicles to fleets across the country and sets a blueprint for how to move to a more sustainable future and think critically about campus fleet planning.”

Club Car offers a full line of Carryall utility and transport vehicles, including a range of EVs, for a wide variety of functions on campus – from building management to landscaping to athletics. The grant program was originally launched to connect sustainability and fleet decision-makers and to help them overcome the perpetual challenge of finding the time and resources to explore new transportation options.

“We continue to see more interest in the grant each year and are even more excited to see the solutions we can provide to the 2021 applicants including our newest vehicle the Club Car Current.” Said Sterba. 

The all-new Club Car Current launched in June of 2021 is ideal for low-speed logistics and cargo services, it has the agility and versatility that’s essential in a campus environment, filling the gap between full-sized trucks and small utility carts.

Through the program, Club Car will award:

  • One applicant with a grant to be used for the purchase of a customized Club Car vehicle, a value up to $10,000.
  • Three applicants with a comprehensive transportation fleet audit, which provides a department-by-department review of current vehicles, a survey of when and how those vehicles are used, and an analysis of the environmental and economic impact of updating and right-sizing fleets with electric utility vehicles.

Schools must submit an application by October 20, 2021, to be eligible for a grant, answering questions about their campus fleet, sustainability strategy, and how transportation can support environmental goals.
