This is the first year of this exciting new initiative at Penn and we need two things – 1) students that want to be a part of our Student Selection Committee, and 2) great organizations around the globe to apply for the prize.

The Barry & Marie Lipman Family Prize, administered by the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, recognizes and amplifies the work of organizations creating sustainable solutions to significant social and economic challenges
