People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Student Design Competition

People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Student Design Competition

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 April at the National Sustainable Design Expo as part of the competition for an additional grant of up to $75,000 to apply their design to a real world application.

The 2017 P3 Phase I Request for Applications (RFA) is anticipated to open in December 2016. An informational webinar about the RFA and application process is scheduled for Dec. 6, 2016, 2 - 3 p.m. Learn more about the webinar and how to register.
