2012 Dell Social Innovation Challenge

WHAT IF you had the tools you need to change the world?

Are you committed to solving social problems? Do you have ideas about how to make the world a better place? If so, enter your ideas in the 2012 Dell Social Innovation Challenge beginning January 3!

The Dell Social Innovation Challenge (DSIC) is a global competition for university students who have big ideas about how to change the world. Students who compete in the DSIC get automatic access to a global community of mentors and social innovators. Plus, more than twenty student teams will win a total of $140,000 in cash prizes! To put it simply, we help students turn ideas into reality.


Any undergrad or graduate student in any field of study, from any country, can enter our challenge. This isn’t your traditional business plan competition – you can enter a project at any stage, whether you’ve just thought of an idea or are already running an organization. It doesn’t matter if your idea is nonprofit or for-profit.


Entering is free and easy! You can enter as many projects as you’d like, in any category. Entry is now open. Sign up now so you’re the first to know.
