Smart Campus Challenge

Think you’ve got the fix for a campus sustainability problem? Pitch your next big idea and sell Ohio State Energy Partners (OSEP) on sustainability for a chance to get your dream project funded — all while positively impacting campus.

Each year, OSEP provides philanthropic contributions to a variety of organizations, projects and programs. For the 2018-2019 academic year, OSEP will support campus sustainability innovation by sponsoring a venture capitalist-style sustainability competition for students.

Teams of 3 to 5 students from every Ohio State University campus will have the opportunity to propose projects that support the university’s sustainability goals.

The first-place winning team will have the opportunity to travel to ENGIE’s Innovation Week in June — paid for by ENGIE. In 2014, ENGIE launched an innovation initiative to connect innovators and their solutions with the stakeholders who need them most. The winning team will have the opportunity to attend the Innovation Week Trophy award ceremony in Paris, France, and see first-hand the world’s next innovative energy solutions.

Student Grant Competition

The Public Narrative Collaborative Global Arts & Humanities Discovery Theme is offering small grants up to $500 for work dealing with public narrative for undergraduate and graduate students graduating in spring and summer of 2019. 
 
The Public Narrative Collaborative supports broad definitions of public and of narrative. Its work is grounded in the cultural pervasiveness and widely-acknowledged power of stories and storytelling. Once thought to reside safely in the domains of literature, history, and folklore, narrative is now recognized as significant in just about every sphere of human activity: in politics, medicine, religion, education, law, business, sports, the art world, and on and on.  In addition, narratives appear in a range of media: print, radio, film, television, comics, theater, the digital, painting, sculpture, and curated art exhibitions.  Furthermore, narratives have countless purposes, some of which frequently overlap: reporting, explaining, interpreting, evaluating, entertaining, socializing, persuading, and more.  Narrative, in short, is a way of knowing and of doing.
 
PNC would like to make clear that “telling” in this context is not limited to verbal or written language, in fact proposals working in media including but not limited to visual art, sound, performance, moving image will be welcomed.  
 
Submit the following as a single pdf document by December 1st, 2018, by sending the following to ASC-pnc@osu.edu:
  • A brief general description (250 words maximum) of your project.
  • A brief description of how the interests of PNC align with the form, theme, or subject of your project.
  • Amount requested up to $500.
  • General budget (how the money will be spent).
  • CV or short narrative bio of academic and professional accomplishments. 
  • Anticipated graduation date and degree. Applicant must be anticipating graduating in Spring or Summer 2019.
