Application Process

Submitting an application for the President’s Engagement Prize requires completion of four steps:

Step 1: Form an idea.

Water purification in Africa.  Health care across the country.  Education in West Philadelphia.  Every good project starts with a good idea.  Reach out to the Center for Undergraduate Research & Fellowships (CURF), your professors, and your peers to begin brainstorming your idea.

Step 2: Attend an information session.

CURF hosts a number of information sessions throughout the fall semester.  Attend one and learn more about the President’s Engagement Prizes – there’s no commitment involved.

Step 3: Find a mentor.

Every President’s Engagement Prize applicant is required to have a project mentor.  If you don’t already have someone in mind, CURF can help you find one.

Step 4: Submit a project application.

Once you have your idea, plan, and mentor, you’re ready to complete and submit an application.  When the time comes, details on how to submit an application can be found at CURF.
