EPA’s P3 – People, Prosperity and the Planet – Program is a unique college competition for designing solutions for a sustainable future. P3 offers students quality hands-on experience that brings their classroom learning to life. The competition has two phases. For the first phase of the competition, teams are awarded a $15,000 grant to develop their idea. They showcase their research in Spring at the National Sustainable Design Expo. Successful Phase I teams are eligible to compete for a Phase II grant of up to $75,000 to implement their design in a real world setting.
EPA is requesting applications for the 15th Annual P3 Awards. This competition promotes the use of scientific and engineering principles in creating innovative projects to address challenges and develop real-world solutions. Applications are open now through February 7.
