The Geneva Challenge 2017 – Win 10,000 CHF & Free Trip to Geneva


The Geneva Challenge is an annual event organised by The Graduate Institute in Geneva. The topic of the competition is changing every year and this years’ challenge is dedicated to “The challenges of employment”. Students from all over the world, who are currently enrolled in a Master program, are eligible to apply in teams by 25th May 2017.

The idea is to gather contributions that are both theoretically grounded and offer pragmatic solutions to a relevant international development problem stemming from an interdisciplinary collaboration between 3 to 5 enrolled master students from anywhere in the world.

An academic steering committee will select the semi-finalists to be published on the competitions website and then reviewed by an independent jury of experts with academic, governmental and private sector backgrounds. The winning project is awarded 10,000 CHF, the second prize receives 5,000 CHF and the third, 2,500 CHF.

Registration for teams ends: 25th May 2017

Submissions are due by the 31st July 2017
