The Changemaker Challenge is a student pitch competition organized by the Center for Social Impact and Students for Social Innovation (SSI). Any student may generate ideas for innovative ventures or projects that respond to a social, economic, environmental or justice issue of their choice. Students then compete for grant funding (Heston Grant), seed funding (Hartner Fund), or Big Idea Grants to launch or expand their ventures or projects. Award money and mentoring is available to support the implementation. Social ventures or projects may be for-profit, nonprofit, or hybrid models with a domestic or international focus. A panel of distinguished campus and community members will serve as judges for the event.
