Deadline extended for Dow Sustainability Innovation Student Challenge

The deadline has been extended for the Dow Sustainability Innovation Student Challenge Awards (SISCA). Graduate students from Penn State are encouraged to join an international field of universities that are involved in the program.

The five finalists will be chosen based on criteria that includes a proposal that has clearly articulated a new and innovative concept; demonstrates balance of social, economic, and environmental success; and has the potential for significant societal benefits and sustainability impact.

Student competitors can network with leaders and peers in global sustainability, join a reputable network of SISCA alumni, display their work with various external sustainability media and receive monetary prizes. Each finalist will receive a $1,000 stipend toward the development of a final entry. The overall winner of the competition will win $10,000 and the runner-up will win $2,500.
