Event description

Students have an outsized influence on shaping the academic ecosystem from the inside out, but their power is largely untapped. The Alt Protein Project is a global community of student groups that seeks to change that. We inspire, train, and empower students to transform their universities into engines for alternative protein research, education, and innovation, and—in so doing—we propel students to the forefront of the alternative protein movement. Read more about our community and apply to join. If you have any questions, join one of our information sessions for interested student organizers on March 31st at 12 pm EDT or 8 pm EDT to learn more about what it takes to join this vibrant community of leaders and change-makers.

  • Register here for the March 31st information session at 12 pm EDT.
  • Register here for the March 31st information session at 8 pm EDT.
