The Collegiate Inventors Competition
Introduced in 1990, The Collegiate Inventors Competition has rewarded and encouraged hundreds of students to share their inventive ideas with the world. It promotes exploration in invention, science, engineering, technology, and other creative endeavors and provides a window on the future technologies from which society will benefit in the future.
Up to 15 finalists will win an all-expenses paid trip to Washington D.C. in October to participate in a final round of judging and in the awards dinner and presentation.
One Undergraduate winner or team will receive $12,500 and one Graduate winner or team will receive a $15,000 cash prize. One Grand Prize winner or team will receive $25,000. Academic advisors of the winning entries will receive $3,000 each.
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. 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.
