The College Knowledge Challenge is a competitive grant initiative funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to award $2.5 million for the development of innovative web tools that make the college-going process more transparent, collaborative, and easy to navigate for low-income and first generation students.

The 2012 launch of the contest received coverage from CNN and TechCrunch, among others. The press releases are not out yet, but you can view the official announcement of the winners here.
