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 now open until Feb. 3, 2017. Apply now.

An informational webinar about the RFA and application process was held on Dec. 6, 2016. The presentation slides and Q&A will be posted soon for those who were unable to attend.
