Do you want to use your Penn education to make a difference in the lives of others? Do you dream of pioneering your own startup or public service project? Could you use $100,000 to turn your idea into a reality? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, I encourage you to learn more about the President’s Engagement Prize and President’s Innovation Prize. Two of the highest honors open exclusively to Penn seniors, these Prizes, awarded annually, are life-changing opportunities to do well by doing good after graduation. Launched in 2014, the President’s Engagement Prize requires applicants to design a nonprofit venture that has a demonstrable impact in Philadelphia, across the country, or around the world. Launched in 2015, the President’s Innovation Prize asks students to design a for-profit company that has a positive social impact.
