Big Ideas Challenge Info Session

Big Ideas is an annual contest aimed at providing funding, support, and encouragement to interdisciplinary teams of students who have “big ideas.” Since its founding in 2006, Big Ideas has inspired innovative and high-impact student-led projects aimed at solving problems that matter to this generation. By encouraging novel proposals and then supporting concrete next steps, Big Ideas is helping contest winners make an impact all over the world.
The infrastructure of this contest is made possible through the generous support of the Andrew & Virginia Rudd Family Foundation.
Big Ideas also connects students with the mentorship, training, and resources needed to successfully conceptualize, deploy, and scale social innovations. It is open to undergraduate and graduate students with creative solutions that address social challenges, the contest awards up to $300,000 in prizes across 40-50 winning teams annually.
By leveraging the creativity of students and the power of competition to drive innovation, Big Ideas creates lasting, positive and impactful social change—empowering a new generation of social innovators.
