The New Haven Civic Innovation Prize is a $10,000 cash prize awarded to the best student-led venture, project, or policy focused on benefitting the city of New Haven. In late 2019, Mayor Elicker’s transition team conducted a series of public meetings, surveys, and stakeholder conversations to inform the city’s priorities, gathering input from hundreds of New Haven community members. The New Haven Civic Innovation Prize aims to catalyze student-led innovations that address, and are informed by, these community priorities. Students or teams of students who are working on projects in any of the key areas of concentration addressed in the transition team’s report, which range from arts and culture to health and housing, are welcome to apply.
This prize is managed by Tsai CITY, in partnership with the City of New Haven.
Final prize applications are due at 11:59pm on 3/15. Apply here.
