Partnering with Universities and STudents

University campuses are driving innovation, and students are eager to make a difference. The Opus Prize connects Catholic universities and their students with faith-filled entrepreneurs. The result is a mutually beneficial connection, advancing the mission of those doing good around the world by inspiring students to support global causes.

Students help lead the selection process, visiting finalists and making life-changing connections.

Finalists visit university campuses, inspiring students to explore lives of service.

Campuses are called to connect faith and giving in powerful and practical ways.

How we work with University Partners

This Year's Partner


We are proud to partner with the University of Portland to present the 2018 Opus Prize.

The University of Portland is an independently governed Catholic university guided by the Congregation of Holy Cross. U.S. News & World Report ranks the institution as one of the top ten regional universities in the American West. It is the only school in Oregon to offer a College of Arts & Sciences, a graduate school, and nationally accredited programs in the schools of business, education, engineering, and nursing.
