Hult Prize On Campus gives organisers an opportunity to deliver social change by bringing Hult Prize programs to their university. As part of the On-Campus Program, organisers will be able to train, educate and inspire students by building an impact community around On Campus events.

The Hult Prize was established by Bertil Hult and is an annual, year-long competition that crowd-sources ideas from MBA and college students after challenging them to solve a pressing social issue around topics such as food security, water access, energy, and education. The Hult family – founders of EF Education First – donates USD 1 million in seed capital to help the winning team launch a social enterprise.
The Prize is a partnership between Hult International Business School and the United Nations Foundation. President Bill Clinton selects the challenge topic and announces the winner each September; he mentioned it in a 2012 TIME Magazine article about “the top 5 ideas that are changing the world for the better”. The Hult prize has been referred to as the “Nobel Prize for students” by Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus Source Wikipedia
