The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the release of the 16th Annual P3 Awards: A National Student Design Competition Focusing on People, Prosperity and the Planet (P3) Phase I Request for Applications (RFA). This collegiate design competition promotes the use of scientific and engineering principles in creating innovative projects to address environmental challenges and develop real-world solutions. This RFA is seeking applications in the research areas of Air Quality, Safe and Sustainable Water Re-sources, Sustainable and Healthy Communities, and Chemical Safety.

Join us on Tuesday, Nov. 8 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET for an informational webinar about the P3 RFA and application process. Webinar details will be posted on the P3 website.

P3 Program:
The P3 program is a two-phase team competition. For the first phase, interdisciplinary student teams compete for one-year grants of up to $25,000 for project ideas addressing environmental solutions. Recipients use the funding to research and develop their design projects during the academic year. In the spring, Phase I Teams attend the National Student Design Expo to showcase their projects and designs. Phase I teams are eligible to compete for Phase II funding of up to $100,000 to implement their projects in a real-world setting.
