Would you like to win a € 5,000 grant to break new ground with your graduation research about water or plastic waste? Join the Changemaker Challenge!
The Changemaker Challenge is open to HBO and Master students within all fields of study. If your graduation research is related to plastic waste and/or water, you should definitely sign up and compete for research grants of up to € 5000.
You can use that money for example, to develop a prototype, to sail the plastic soup to take samples, to get your recycled plastic dresses on the catwalk or for a Hollywood film about your findings (featuring Leonardo Dicaprio). Anything is possible! Have a look at our website for more ideas and inspiration.
Submission is open until April 1st, 2018. It doesn’t matter in which phase of the graduation period you are. We just need to know the subject of your research and your ideas on how to spend the research grant!
The Dopper Foundation hopes to stimulate you and other graduate students by initiating this challenge in gathering knowledge about and finding solutions for the issues surrounding plastic waste and water. The Dopper Foundation has full faith in your own innovativeness and will in no way interfere within the research.
The students with the 20 potentially most groundbreaking ideas will be attending the semi finals on May 12th. Here, at the end of the day the 10 finalists will be selected. The finals take place on World Ocean Day the 8th of June, which is going to be an inspiring and unforgettable experience.
You can sign up for the challenge through the form on the website. Don’t be shy to do so, any student can save the planet!
