The Odebrecht Award for Sustainable Development is open to undergraduate and graduate students from accredited universities across the United States. Students must be enrolled full-time for the academic term in which the competition takes place. Projects may be undertaken individually or in a group of no more than three students under the supervision of an Advising Professor.
If in a group, students must be enrolled at the same university and are encouraged to invite team members from other schools or departments within their institution. At least one student in the group must be pursuing a degree in engineering (all areas), architecture, building and construction management, or chemistry.
