An undergraduate research and entrepreneurial competition challenging students to submit and develop innovative ideas targeting societal problems.
In this competition, we provide $500 to 20 - 30 undergraduate students and/or groups to develop their innovative proposals over the Fall and Spring semesters. Out of the chosen projects, three will win a monetary award at an end of year ceremony and poster session.
Other eligible teams will be encouraged and aided in publishing papers, applying for patents, starting businesses, or pursuing other undergraduate research opportunities/funding. Teams are chosen in the Fall semester based on (a) innovation and creativity, (b) significance of niche/problem addressed, and (c) the practical ability to develop the project.
