Join the MIT Global Challenge
How much of an impact can students, alumni, and other members of the MIT community have when they set out to improve the world? The MIT Global Challenge aims to find out.
The service innovation and entrepreneurship competition is encouraging an unprecedented level of collaboration among MITers as they apply their problem-solving skills to barriers to human well-being.
Currently, 50 student teams are working to improve life in at least eight countries. Proposals run the gamut, from water-capture solutions for arid communities in India to educational tools delivered via mobile devices. Teams compete for a share of $150,000 in implementation awards—up to $25,000 per team.
