  • 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.

    $100,000 in cash and prizes is awarded to the top three entries in each division. Advisors of winning entries receive cash prizes as well. Other prizes may be awarded at the discretion of the judges.

    Eligibility:
    Students must be enrolled (or have been enrolled) full-time in any college or university at least part of the 12-month period prior to the date the entry is submitted. The final product must be complete, workable and well-articulated evidenced by the fact that it has been reduced to practice. In the case of a team (maximum of four students), at least one member of the team must meet the full-time eligibility criteria. The other team members must have been enrolled on a part-time basis (at a minimum) sometime during the 24-month period prior to the date the entry is submitted.
