Students in selected institutions of high learning have about 11 weeks to submit their proposals for the grand prize of P250 000 in the CEDA/DBSA University Challenge that was launched in March this year. This is the second year of the competition - a partnership between the Citizen Entrepreneurial Development Agency (CEDA) and the Development Bank of Southern Africa (DBSA). The Challenge that closes on August 3, 2018, has since been extended to include participation of the general public.

According to organisers, the University Challenge maintains the theme of addressing issues of unemployment in Botswana, therefore seeks to support and fund practical localised, viable, and sustainable solutions to address the high employment levels. This year, three more institutions; Institution of Development Management (IDM), Botswana Open University and Boitekanelo College have been included in the competition. Other institutions include; University of Botswana, Botswana International University of Science and Technology (BIUST), Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (BUAN), Botho University, Gaborone University College of Law, ABM University College, Ba Isago University, Limkokwing University of Creative Technology, Gaborone Institute of Professional Studies (GIPS) and Botswana Accountancy College (BAC). The University Challenge remains eligible to only Batswana students in the participating institutions. The 2017 University Challenge was won by Lebogang Pule of Botswana University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (BUAN) who received the grand prize of P200 000. Applicants can log on to the CEDA website to download the guidelines and entry forms.
