WHO CAN ENTER

Anyone and everyone can join our growing online social innovation community and support students on their projects. Only currently enrolled university and college students may create project entries and compete in our annual grand prize competition.

Our Dell Social Innovation Challenge annual competition is open to ALL university students in the world–-it doesn’t matter what school you attend or what you’re studying. And you don’t need a venture plan to enter. Everything from early-stage ideas to mature projects that are up and running can compete to win. Your innovation project could be vested in starting a nonprofit organization, a for-profit business, a campaign, community volunteerism, university club or even other informal or formal operations. Your individual user profile gives you an option to find project team members, join existing teams, attract support and help others on their projects.

We offer and give out over $350,000 annually in cash and in-kind prizes. Our Grand Prize Awards are chosen by judges, offering five cash prizes totaling $140,000.
