Pilot Pen G2 Overachievers Grant

Pilot Pen is once again looking for true Overachievers—adults and students who go above and beyond to make their communities and our world better for us all. Whether it’s an individual going above and beyond their 9-to-5 job to improve their community, a student making a difference outside their classroom or another noble effort, we want to hear about it and give these Overachievers the recognition they deserve.

That’s why we’re hosting the $100,000 G2 Overachievers Grant and the $15,000 G2 Overachievers Student Grant. Both grants will be awarded to outstanding overachievers who go above and beyond to improve the lives of others.
