|The 2018 Lemelson-MIT Student Prize Initial Application deadline of September 29, 2017 is fast approaching. We would be delighted if you could please share this information with your networks and encourage eligible students to apply, if you have not done so already.
The Lemelson-MIT Student Prize is a national invention competition that recognizes individual graduate students who have tested prototypes of two or more inventions and teams of undergraduate students with a tested prototype of one invention.
The competition is open to full-time, degree-seeking students (as of the spring semester of 2018) with technology-based inventions in healthcare, food/water and agriculture, transportation, and consumer devices. Inventions are not limited to class projects or thesis work, and any side/personal projects could also be considered. Patents are encouraged but not required. In each of the four categories, graduate students are awarded $15,000 and undergraduate teams are awarded $10,000.
Thank you for your consideration, and feel free to reach out with any questions.
