EPA Accepting Applications for Sustainability Competition

Check out this note from the EPA on their "P3 Program."

We are announcing a unique grant opportunity for college and university faculty and students – EPA’s P3 – People, Prosperity and the Planet – Program. Through this hands-on design competition, student teams and their faculty advisors receive $15,000 grants to design scientific, technical, and policy solutions to sustainability challenges around the world. Projects can address a challenge in one or more of these areas: water, energy, agriculture, built environment, or materials & chemicals.

Teams use the $15,000 grants to design and develop their projects in the 2011/2012 school year. Then in the spring of 2012, all teams will come to Washington, DC, to compete for EPA’s P3 Award at the 8th Annual National Sustainable Design Expo. The students’ projects will be evaluated by a panel of experts convened by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. EPA will use these recommendations to choose the P3 Award winners who may receive an additional grant up to $90,000 to further develop their designs, implement them in the field, and take them to the marketplace.


Apply Today!
Deadline: December 22, 2010


Visit the
EPA Website for more information and to see what past P3 teams have accomplished and for the official request for applications.
