Every year, Kellogg-Morgan Stanley Sustainable Investing Challenge invites teams of graduate students from around the globe to develop institutional-quality investment vehicles that seek positive environmental or social impact and competitive financial returns. Culminating in a final event with experts from some of the world’s leading financial and impact investing institutions, students present their proposals for judging on scales of financial innovation, feasibility and impact.
Teams of graduate students from around the world are invited to participate.
Each team is limited to a maximum of four members, all of whom must be enrolled in a graduate program at the time of the prospectus submission.
See the Challenge website for guidelines about team composition.
The winning and runner-up teams are awarded cash prizes of $10,000 and $5,000, respectively.
The winning team will also have the opportunity to attend and present at the Milken Institute Global Conference. Each year, finalist teams emerge from the Challenge and go on to launch funds and innovations.
Students also have the opportunity to connect with potential employers.
