Annual P3 Awards: A National Student Design Competition for Sustainability Focusing on People, Prosperity and the Planet


Awards are $25k and $100k for projects.

From Steve Skerlos (MechEng Prof at U-M): “The key to winning this award is to not just be doing routine calculations but actually solving problems nobody has solved before. A lot of BLUElab and Global Health projects could fall in that space. If a group of students needs some advice on how to do well in this program, I can help and would be glad to. Ironically this program was started by my first Ph.D. student (Julie Zimmerman) who modeled it off of the Design Expo we do in Engineering every term. We’ve had several winning teams through BLUElab over the years. The application process has gotten quite bureaucratic recently. -Steve”
