The Technovation McGovern Alumna Changemaker Award is an award, sponsored by Technovation and our partner, the Patrick J McGovern Foundation, to recognize an alumna who has worked to solve an environmental problem* in their community this year (May 2021-the present).
$5,000 will be given to the selected winner, chosen by a panel of judges.
Individual alumnae may apply for this award on their own behalf OR as a group, if they have worked with fellow Alumnae (18 years or older) on a project. If Alumnae apply as a group and are selected to win, the prize will be split equally amongst the Alumnae group members.
