Social Innovation Challenge (SIC)

Idea Labs prepare students to enter the $50,000 Social Innovation Challenge (SIC). The SIC promotes, guides, and supports student-driven ideas to launch or to contribute to existing social enterprises by generating for-profit, hybrid and nonprofit organizations, locally and abroad. The SIC has awarded $158,000 in cash prizes to students since its inception in 2011.

The Social Innovation Challenge is organized by the Center for Peace and Commerce and is open to all University of San Diego students at the graduate and undergraduate levels, as well as non USD students from the Point Loma Nazaren University, San Diego City College, San Diego State University, and University of California San Diego.
