The Dell Social Innovation Challenge aims to transform university students into active social innovators. We invite you to incorporate the Dell Social Innovation Challenge into your semester courses as a way of connecting your students to the global community of student social innovators and enabling them to gain access to resources for their projects, including training, mentorship and seed funding. In 2012 we awarded more than $350,000 in cash and in-kind prizes, including our Grand Prize of $50,000!
What is the Dell Social Innovation Challenge? The Dell Social Innovation Challenge (DSIC) connects university students to the people, tools and opportunities they need to change the world. The challenge is part competition and part community. At DellChallenge.org, students compete for cash prizes to put their social innovation projects into action and connect with a worldwide community of supportive, likeminded educators and professionals.
Is there a fee to enter the competition? No. There's no cost to enter the competition. It's also free for non-competitors (students, educators or professionals) to create a profile. The only requirement is an interest in making the world a better place!
