Endorsed by the National Academy of Engineering since 2009, the Grand Challenges Scholars Program is a combined curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular program with five competencies that are designed to prepare the next generation of students for addressing the grand challenges facing society in the 21st century. At USF, we are aiming to move beyond the traditional way of learning and prepare students to solve these challenges by shifting our focus to a more practical, hands-on education incorporating a global perspective, entrepreneurship, and innovation into our program.
