The P3 Impact Award was created by Concordia, the University of Virginia Darden School Institute for Business in Society, and the U.S. Department of State’s Office of Global Partnerships to recognize and honor leading public-private partnerships (P3s) that improve communities and the world. Inaugurated in 2014, the P3 Impact Award is presented each fall at the Concordia Summit in New York, New York. The award seeks to highlight leading practices and actionable insights in the P3 arena. For this award, a P3 refers to any cross-sector collaboration that features public, private, nonprofit, or non-governmental organizations and addresses societal problems.
The P3 Impact Award team will appoint an independent panel of P3 experts to review and assess applications based on the award criteria. Judges will assess the applications based on the partnership’s operational structure, measurable social impact, financial effectiveness, innovation, and scalability.
The P3 Impact Award winner will be recognized on the main stage of the Concordia Annual Summit, the largest gathering alongside the United Nations General Assembly. Additionally, winners will receive a scholarship to attend a week-long Executive Education course at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business and the opportunity to be the subject of a case study published by Darden Business Publishing. All applicants will be considered for eligibility as participants, mentors, or speakers in the U.S. Department of State’s Boldline P3 Accelerator program.
The application is now live, and each applicant will be required to complete the entire application by April 27, 2020. Please apply via the link above. Once the application period closes, judges will score each submission based on criteria required on the application form. These are then combined to create an overall score for each entry and the highest scoring entries will determine the finalists.
This year we will be launching the inaugural P3 Impact Award Accelerator. This accelerator program is designed to help advance early-stage partnerships who may need support and guidance as they continue to work on achieving positive social impact.
Select early-stage partnerships who will not advance as finalists will be invited to participate in the Accelerator.
