SAMHSA Seeks Proposals for Technology To Prevent High-Risk College Drinking
June 6, 2013
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has announced a challenge that seeks proposals for cost-effective, portable technology-based products to decrease the acceptability of and engagement in high-risk drinking among college students. Product applications should be capable of reaching students, their parents, and campus administrators, faculty, and staff and be adaptable to local institution settings. Product designs may include—but are not limited to—Web applications, mobile apps, short message services, and podcasts. Winners will receive $60,000 for first place, $30,000 for second place, and $10,000 for third place. Submissions must be received by July 8, 2013.
