This Request for Applications (RFA) represents the 20th anniversary of the National P3 Awards competition. Previously awarded projects funded through this program can be viewed at the People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Student Design Competition website. For the 20th annual P3 competition, P3 has transitioned to a single phased competitive program that will fund individual grant awards of up to $75,000 for a two-year project period. Student teams are asked to propose innovative and sustainable ideas and concepts and carry them through the research, design and demonstration stage. During the second year of the award (2025), student teams will showcase their project designs at the P3 National Student Design Expo.
The P3 program is emphasizing the use of innovation in projects submitted to this announcement. The program challenges and empowers interdisciplinary student teams to transform their classroom learning into hands-on experience by designing and demonstrating tangible solutions to real-world environmental issues in their communities.
