Want to Change the World? Penn Has a Prize for That

blurb: 
The search for entries in the inaugural President’s Engagement Prize competition is underway. As many as three seniors who design and undertake local, national or global engagement projects for the first year following their graduation will be selected for the President’s Engagement Prizes, which consist of $50,000 for living expenses and as much as $100,000 for project implementation expenses.

The big banner on the ARCH on Locust Walk and the emails from President Gutmann to the senior class have gotten the message out: The search for entries in the inaugural President’s Engagement Prize competition is underway.
