Open Date: October 1, 2019 Close Date: November 19, 2019

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announces the release of the 17th 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 Resources, Sustainable and Healthy Communities, and Chemical Safety.

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.

P3 was developed to foster progress by achieving the mutual goals of improved quality of life, economic prosperity, and protection of the planet – people, prosperity and the planet. EPA’s P3 Program offers technical solutions to environmental challenges while supporting education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). These grants propel the next generation of scientists, engineers, and researchers to think critically about current events and develop innovative solutions.

For general information on how to apply, visit https://www.epa.gov/P3/how-apply-p3-grant.

The P3 Student Design Competition is part of EPA’s Sustainable and Healthy Communities (SHC) Research Program, which supports the development of science and tools to help communities make better decisions toward a healthy society and environment.
