People, Prosperity, and the Planet Program

EPA's P3 – People, Prosperity, and the Planet -- Program is a unique college competition for designing solutions for a sustainable future. P3 offers students quality hands-on experience that brings their classroom learning to life.

The competition has two phases. For the first phase, teams are awarded a $15,000 grant to develop their idea. They bring the design in April to the National Sustainable Design Expo in Washington, DC, to compete for the P3 award and a second phase grant of $90,000 to take their design to real world application.
