Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Kellogg-Morgan Stanley Sustainable Investing Challenge! We have many opportunities for you to get involved, including becoming a mentor, a first round judge or a Career Trek networking lead. This short survey serves as the application for all of the above. We encourage you to sign up for as many as your time allows because we find that many professionals are most satisfied when they both cultivate and evaluate.


MENTORS (1-3 video chats with a student team prior to February 18, 2024)

Mentors will be asked to connect via video with their assigned student team (one team per mentor) to help them think through their idea and approach, to provide suggestions of information and resources. Mentor pairing will occur on a rolling basis from December through January. 


FIRST-ROUND JUDGES (Rate 3-5 prospectuses between February 19 and February 25, 2024)

First-round judging occurs entirely online. First-round judges will be asked to review and rate three to five 2-page prospectuses submitted by student teams between February 19 and February 25, 2024. We use an easy online reading and rating system to help make it easy, and of course we'll send along all the judging criteria and information.


CAREER TREK NETWORKING LEADS (One hour commitment on February 23, 2024)

The career trek enables all competing students to get exposure to insights on what real careers in sustainable finance look like and hear from professionals discussing the lessons they learned and giving the advice they wished they’d received. The professional leads will drive two 30-minute speed networking sessions with a small group of competing students.


Your support helps make the competition possible, enriches the experience of the students, and contributes to the development of the field. We look forward to reviewing your information and will be in touch with more details if you are a fit for this year's program.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
