Each year, The Buckminster Fuller Institute (BFI) invites people from all over the world—including scientists, designers, architects, activists, artists, planners, entrepreneurs, and students—to submit their innovative solutions to humanity’s most pressing problems. A $100,000 grand prize is awarded to support the development and implementation of one outstanding strategy, but the Fuller Challenge offers more than a single financial award. In addition to the $100,000 grand prize, BFI seeks to leverage further resources for Finalists, Semi-finalists, and select entrants through its network and Catalyst Program. For more information, visit: bfi.org/challenge/ about/catalyst-program.
In 2016, BFI will recognize outstanding student proposals to the Challenge. This is the first time that student entries will undergo a separate review and selection process. For more information, visit: bfi.org/ challenge/about/selection-process/student-award-category.
