President’s Innovation Prize Deadline

January 26 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Applications are open for the President’s Innovation Prize which awards a graduating Penn senior, or a team of graduating seniors, $100,000 (plus a $50,000 living stipend per team member) to envision and implement an innovative, commercial venture that makes a positive difference in the world.  The competition is open to full-time undergraduates in good academic standing in the Engineering, Nursing, SAS (including LPS), or Wharton undergraduate divisions who have completed at least three-quarters of the credits needed for their baccalaureate degree and who are scheduled to graduate in December 2023, May 2024, or August 2024.

Unique at both Penn and across higher education, the Prize underscores the University’s considerable commitment to encouraging students to put their knowledge to work for the betterment of humankind.  One of the 2022 winners of the prize, Baleena, was recently named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list this year.

The President’s Innovation Prize is jointly administered by the Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships and PCI.  This year’s application deadline is January 26, 2024.  A winner will be announced in April.
