Innovation for social impact


As an annual innovation, service, and social entrepreneurship competition run by the Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center, IDEAS enables students to work in teams to tackle quality of life issues for people around the world.

Teams receive feedback, advice, access to workshops and trainings, publicity, and an opportunity to compete for up to $15,000 in grant funding to implement their projects. Through the IDEAS program, teams can take an effective step toward resolving pressing individual and community challenges.

Since 2001, 150 winning IDEAS teams have been awarded over $975,000 in funding and have served the needs of tens of thousands of people. Learn more.
