Affordable Housing Development Competition
– Student Registration

Welcome to the student registration page, which is designed to identify your skills and interests to facilitate team formation. It is imperative that you attend at least one of the first introductory sessions to learn about the competition and complete this student registration. The student coordinating committee will use this information to help students form teams.

Applicants will receive information on all participants before the second introductory session, when students will continue to form teams. If you have questions about the process, please contact student coordinating committee members Sam Carson, Harvard Kennedy School ; William Monson, MIT Department of Urban Studies and Planning ; or Adam Tanaka, Harvard Graduate School of Design .

The competition is geared primarily for and by graduate students. Advanced undergraduates may be able to participate and have done so successfully in the past. The Affordable Housing Development (AHD) competition requires significant time and energy. Students can expect to spend on average 15 hours a week developing their proposals. For undergraduates interested in participating in the AHD competition, there are additional requirements. Undergraduates must enroll in an affordable housing development, finance, and management course or submit a brief essay for admission to the competition (see the last question below on the student registration).

Students are welcome to begin registering for the 2017 competition.
