Reminder: The final application deadline for both the President’s Engagement Prize and President’s Innovation Prize is February 2, 2024. You should complete and submit your pre-application form, which opens the ability to request letters from your Penn project mentor and recommender, as soon as you have your team, mentor, and recommenders finalized.  This will provide everyone with the necessary time to complete their portions of the application process.

To assist those who are considering to apply for the 2024 President’s Engagement or Innovation Prize, we will be welcoming back over the next two weeks a number of past Prize recipients for a series of information sessions. These sessions with past recipients are excellent opportunities to hear directly from recent graduates who were in your shoes just a short time ago. The sessions will all be held virtually via this Zoom link.

Sessions will be held as follows (all times in EST):

  • Wednesday, November 29, from 4-5 p.m. with The Community Grocer (2022 President’s Engagement Prize – sustainability track – recipient)
  • Thursday, November 30, from 4-5 p.m. with InstaHub (2019 President’s Innovation Prize recipient)
  • Friday, December 1, from 3-4 p.m. with Sonura (2023 President’s Innovation Prize recipient)
  • Tuesday, December 5, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. with Act First (2023 President’s Engagement Prize recipient)
  • Thursday, December 7, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. with Cosmic Writers (2022 President’s Engagement Prize recipient)

If you plan to attend, we ask that you please indicate so using this RSVP form. We encourage you to attend, even if you are simply interested in learning more at this point.

While underclassmen are most welcome to attend these virtual sessions, a reminder that eligibility for the 2024 Prizes is limited to Penn seniors graduating in December 2023, May 2024, or August 2024. If you have additional questions, please feel free to email (Engagement Prize) or (Innovation Prize).
