The Sutu Award

Are you a first, second or third-year student at Memorial University? Do you have an idea that solves a problem? Are you interested in creating a product to solve that problem?

The Sutu Award is for you!

The Sutu Award helps a student in their first, second or third year of any program who is interested in developing a product and working with the Memorial Centre for Entrepreneurship (MCE).

Established by the founders of Sutu, one of the winners of the inaugural 2017 Mel Woodward Cup, this annual award is valued at $1,000 and will be granted to a student in their first, second, or third year of study in any undergraduate program at Memorial University.

This award is also an excellent prep for the Mel Woodward Cup, where students can win $25,000 to work on their entrepreneurial project!
