The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is now accepting nominations for the 14th Annual P3 National Student Design Competition Grant Program for sustainability focusing on people, prosperity and the planet. Nominations are due February 3.
The P3 competition highlights the use of scientific principles in creating innovative projects focused on sustainability.
The P3 Award Program was developed to foster progress toward sustainability by achieving the mutual goals of improved quality of life, economic prosperity and protection of the planet—people, prosperity, and the planet—the three pillars of sustainability.
Approximately $900,000 is available for grants for all Phase I & II grant awards.
Up to $15,000 is available for a Phase I grant including direct and indirect costs. Proposals for Phase I grants requesting an award of more than $15,000 will not be considered.

Upon the successful completion of Phase I, grant recipients will have the opportunity to apply for a P3 Phase II grant of up to $75,000 total for two years including direct and indirect costs. Proposals for Phase II grants requesting an award of more than $75,000 or with a duration of more than two years will not be considered.
Cost-sharing is not required for either Phase I or Phase II grants.
