P3 Program:

The P3 program is a two-phase team competition. For the first phase, interdisciplinary student teams compete for one-year grants of up to $25,000 for project ideas addressing environmental solutions.  Recipients use the funding to research and develop their design projects during the academic year. In the spring, Phase I Teams attend the National Student Design Expo to showcase their projects and designs.  Phase I teams are eligible to compete for Phase II funding of up to $100,000 to implement their projects in a real-world setting.

P3 was developed to foster progress by achieving the mutual goals of improved quality of life, economic prosperity, and protection of the planet - people, prosperity and the planet. EPA’s P3 Program offers technical solutions to environmental challenges while supporting education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). These grants propel the next generation of scientists, engineers, and researchers to think critically about current events and develop innovative solutions.
