Miscellaneous Grants

University of California, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory
The Max Tech and Beyond Design Competition for Ultra-Low-Energy-Use Appliances and Equipment


This program supports faculty-lead student design teams at U.S. universities to design, build, and test ultra efficient product prototypes to reduce energy consumption in buildings and/or prototypes that greatly reduce the cost of such ultra-efficient products.
Eligibility: Stanford faculty with PI eligibility. Teams must consist of a faculty team advisor in a suitable field of study and at least three undergraduate and/or graduate students. Larger student teams are preferred. Senior engineering design teams are highly encouraged to apply.
Proposals are submitted by the facutly team advisor and reviewed during the summer. Proposals must make a credible argument that their innovations will result in at least 5% energy savings over current best-on-market products or reduce the cost of ultra-efficient products by at least 20%. The teams design, build, and test their prototypes during the academic year.
Selected teams receive up to $24,000 in support via a subcontract
Deadline:
July 7, 2014

National Collegiate Inventors Alliance (NCIIA)

E-Team Program
The E-Team Program provides early-stage support and funding of up to $75,000 for collegiate entrepreneurs working on market-based technology inventions. NCIIA defines an E-Team as a multidisciplinary group of students, faculty, and industry mentors working together to bring a technology-based invention (product or service) to market. The "E" stands for entrepreneurship.
Stage 1 provides funding of up to $5,000 to attend a three-day workshop on market analysis and value proposition development. The focus of Stage One is to better articulate the opportunity for the innovation in the marketplace and to develop near-term milestones. Remaining funds may be used to support further development of your project/product.
Stage 2 provides additional funding of up to $20,000. A required, intensive workshop helps teams further develop their business model. Six monthly sessions of coaching follow the workshop, guiding the team from confirmation to execution of their business model.
Stage 3 Eligible Stage 2 teams may be invited to participate in Stage 3 - NCIIA's VentureWell program. VentureWell focuses on helping teams develop a “lens of the investor” perspective and culminates in a venture forum to present to potential investors. NCIIA will invest up to $50,000 in two to three Stage 3 teams per year, typically in the form of convertible debt.
Remaining deadline for 2013-2014: Oct, 1, 2014

Miscellaneous Prizes

 


Collegiate Inventors Competition

The Collegiate Inventors Competition, a program of the National Inventors Hall of Fame and Invent Now, is a national competition that recognizes and rewards innovations, discoveries and research by college and university students and their faculty advisors. The Competition encourages students who actively pursue invention. Students frequently come from science, engineering, mathematics and technology studies but creative invention can emerge from any course of study. The Competition also recognizes the working relationship between a student and his or her advisor.
The invention, a reduced-to-practice idea or working prototype, must be the work of a student or team of students with his or her university advisor.
Graduate Division: Gold: $15,000 (advisor receives $5,000); Silver: $12,500 (advisor receives $3,000); Bronze: $10,000 (advisor receives $2,000)
Undergraduate Division: Gold: $12,500 (advisor receives $4,000); Silver: $10,000 (advisor receives $2,000); Bronze: $7,500 (advisor receives $1,000)
Other prizes may be awarded at the discretion of the judges.
Eligibility: Represent the original idea and work of a student, or team of no more than four students, along with a university advisor. Be submitted by students who meet our full-time eligibility requirement. Individual entrants must be enrolled as full-time students in any U.S. college or university for at least part of the 12-month period prior to entry. Teams must include at least one member who meets this requirement, and all remaining members must be enrolled at least part-time at some point during the 12-month period prior to entry.
No citizenship requirement
Deadline: June 15, 2014
Overview: http://collegiateinventors.org/enter-the-competition/
FAQs-for additional details: http://collegiateinventors.org/faqs/
Institutional representatives: not applicable because this is a prize and not a sponsored project.
Prizes are awarded to the top three entries in each division. Advisors of winning entries receive cash prizes as well.

Note: Inventions are subject to Stanford’s Intellectual Property policies, if applicable.

NSF 14-500 National Robotics Initiatve (NRI)
The realization of robots acting in direct support of individuals and groups
Co-sponsors: NSF, USDA, NASA; NIH
An investigator may participate as PI or co-PI in no more than two proposals submitted in response to this solicitation per year. This limit does not apply to other senior personnel.
Amount of funding: Although there is only one class of proposals, agency requirements and funding mechanisms dictate two ranges of consideration on this solicitation, by agency:
NIH and USDA will consider: Projects comprising one or more investigators with budgets ranging from approximately $100,000 to $250,000 per year in direct costs averaged over the duration of the project, with durations of one to three years.
NSF and NASA will consider: Projects comprising one or more investigators with budgets ranging from approximately $100,000 to $1,000,000 per year in total costs (direct and indirect) averaged over the duration of the project, with durations of one to three years. It is expected that the bulk of awards will be made at the smaller end of the range.
