Deadline for applications: May 1, 2021 by 11:59 PM EDT

Project Run With It (PRWI) furthers the community service component of Beta Alpha Psi and provides student members with an opportunity to engage in a real-world consulting project.

For the first time since Project Run With It began in 2008, the 2020 competition was carried out successfully in a virtual setting and platform. 

Project Run With It 2021 will also be conducted virtually.  The platform allows for the expansion of participating non-profit organizations beyond the geographic location of the Annual Meeting site.  It will also broaden the opportunity for all Beta Alpha Psi chapter members including those with travel restrictions or budget limitations.  

You’ll find below some important elements of this year’s competition, as follows:  

  • Student participants will work together to develop solutions to real-life business problems of actual not-for-profit (NFP) organizations.
  • Details about the participating NFP organizations and their requests for proposals will be released to participating students shortly after the application process closes.
  • Students will be assigned to teams with participating students from other chapters and regions, as well as have an opportunity to network, collaborate and develop professional presentation materials. 
  • Live Question and Answer sessions with the NFP representatives will give student participants the opportunity to connect with and understand unique aspects of the NFP organizations and their dedicated passion for their cause.
  • Every student team will have an opportunity to create real value in research, fresh outlook and alternative proposals and solutions.
  • The competition timeline and schedule of events will allow flexibility and creativity in teamwork and presentation style.  

2021 Nonprofit Organizations

PRWI Coordinators are currently in the selection process for NFP organizations to participate in PRWI 2021.  Student participants will take on challenging business issues at the request of the selected NFPs to assist them in furthering their worthy and timely missions. 

Details of the projects will be released to the selected participants who confirm their intent to compete and register for the BAP 2021 Annual Meeting within ten days of being notified of their application acceptance.


Each chapter represented on the first-place teams will receive a plaque (which will bear the name of the participating student and chapter) and a $1,000 cash award. Winners will be announced during the Annual Meeting on August 6, 2021.


Follow the link to the Project Run With It Participant Schedule. The schedule will also be updated for important details as they are determined.
