Social Innovation Challenge Prize Money Increases. $30,000 to be Distributed Amongst Winners -- Open to All USD Students

Applications due Feb. 17, 2012

The Center for Peace and Commerce, in partnership with the USD Changemaker Hub, invites all student social innovators at USD to propose ideas for social ventures that will make a sustainable impact on the world we live in. The 2012 Social Innovation Challenge aims at helping students transcend from being visionaries to social enterprise owners/ trend setters/ nonprofit founders by providing seed funding ($30,000 to be distributed), mentorship, and guidance from entrepreneurs and the backing of the entire USD community.
