For Student Groups

Inspire Week 2020

Brown Student Agencies Inspire Week is a weeklong social impact competition funding programs or projects that benefit the Brown or greater Providence community. With it, BSA aims to support deserving student groups on campus who are engaging in positive social initiatives while simultaneously educating the rest of campus about what the groups do.

BSA Spark is a venture competition in which Brown students can pitch ideas for our company’s next business pursuit. We are looking for students to generate new ideas that enrich our undergraduate community, and/or help make on-campus living easier. The student(s) that come up with the best new project win a monetary prize and a job offer at BSA to carry out their idea.
