What is eligible?
Prototype funding can spur development and help convey your idea to a broader audience. We have funding available to help with creating a physical model, object, or device. Student teams are invited to apply for funds that can be used to purchase materials, rent equipment, or hire short-term workers with high level skills beyond the team’s capacity. Let the review committee know you have worked hard to get discounts, free items, pro-bono work from experts that will augment your need for funds. Prototype funding may not be used for marketing, business cards, displays, signage, visuals, etc. You cannot buy computers, 3-D printers, phones, or pay team members, transportation or lodging. You cannot use funds for legal or other professional fees. Awards generally are between $500 and $3000, although other requests will be considered.
