The Millennium Oceans Prize is returning for its eighth year to support and celebrate students who are passionate about conserving, protecting, and sustainably using oceans, seas, and marine water and life.

- Only undergraduate students are eligible to apply;
- Submissions should demonstrate the ability to galvanize peers and sustain active engagement for a full academic year. Although the campaigns will be time-bound, their impact should pave the way for the next series of student movements to transpire.
