The Hult Prize, which has been called the “Nobel prize for students,” attracts over 20,000 of the world’s brightest students to solve one global problem annually, as posed by President Bill Clinton. Students compete on teams from top schools like Harvard, Stanford, MIT, and London School of Economics, as well as hundreds of other universities and colleges globally.
In its newest program, the Hult Prize has brought the USD$1 million start-up challenge directly to college campuses around the world in the breakthrough Hult Prize@ Program. Hult Prize@ is a quarterfinal round of the Hult Prize competition,and secures a spot at Regional Finals for the school’s winning team, bypassing thousands of applicants from the online general application pool. Last year 1,000 students from nearly 100 colleges and universities around the world participated in Hult Prize@, which is giving students an even bigger role to play in changing the trajectory of some of the world’s toughest problems.
