DOW SISCA 2015 - $10K Award for UMN Grad Student

Again this year, Dow and the University of Minnesota Institute on the Environment are sponsoring the $10k Dow Sustainability Innovation Student Challenge Award (SISCA). SISCA recognizes and rewards student innovation and research on sustainable solutions to the world's most pressing social, economic and environmental problems.

This competition is only open to UMN graduate and professional students and has a $10K first prize and $2.5K runner up prize. In 2013 and 2014 there were 12-14 entries, so the odds of winning are quite high for an award of this size.
