If you could change one thing in this world, what would it be?

Ohio State students have powerful ideas for making our world
a better place and the ambition to transform ideas into action. The new President’s Prize
provides two graduating seniors the crucial connections and financial support
they need to advance innovative ideas for change in their first year after graduation.
It is an investment in social transformation and in individuals
who are passionate about creating a better world.

What is your vision for change?

Two graduating seniors were selected in November 2018 as the recipients
of the President's Prize, Ohio State's highest recognition
bestowed on exceptional students committed to social change.
Zac Graber and Christian McGhee each will receive a $50,000 living stipend and up to $50,000 in startup funding. President's Prize financial support is supplemented by access to faculty mentors
and other accomplished experts, as well as opportunities to share project ideas with Ohio State's global community of alumni, friends and partners.
