"We’ve found opportunities and resources in every corner of Penn. If you have an idea, it’s up to you to make the most of it."
It starts with an idea. All graduating seniors are encouraged to think about how the President’s Innovation Prize might help them create a for-profit company that has the potential to produce a positive and lasting social impact.
The Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships (CURF) hosts weekly information sessions throughout the fall semester. All interested applicants are encouraged to attend at least one information session. Visit CURF’s website for a list of upcoming sessions.
Each President’s Innovation Prize applicant is required to have a project mentor. Project mentors must be Penn faculty or staff. If you don’t already have someone in mind, the Penn Center for Innovation (PCI) can help you find a mentor.
When you are ready, you can submit your application on CURF’s website.
