Harmony Award

The Harmony Award is a social enterprise track that inspires UCSI students to rise up as agents of social change. It promotes education as a force for good and it seeks to extend UCSI’s strong track record in societal empowerment and community organising.

If you have ideas that that empower the underprivileged, galvanise society, promote harmony or champion a burning issue, we want to hear from you. Form your teams, come up with your proposals and be the change you seek.


The Harmony Award is open to all students of UCSI University and UCSI College.

There is no limit to team size but as they say, too many cooks spoil the broth. Individual submissions may also be made.

Participants can only commit to one team. Multiple entries are not allowed.

The competition is designed for projects that are either:

  • New ideas that are either at concept of pilot phase.
  • Significant innovations from ongoing operations.
