  • Gain talent at networking events and job fairs

Together, we can build a better future with and for each other.

“The Grand Challenges Initiative is preparing me for my future career. It gives a lot more hands-on experience -- it’s one of the best ways that we can learn because it is comparable to what we’ll do in the workplace.”
