NCIIA Course and Program Grants


Friday, November 07, 2014


Course and Program grants are awarded to NCIIA member institutions for the purpose of strengthening existing curricular programs or building new programs in technology-based invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Proposals may request support for a single course, a course sequence, a certificate program, a minor or major, extracurricular programs or a combination of these. Successful proposals include the following elements:

  • The formation of student teams (E-Teams*) focused on technology invention, innovation and entrepreneurship with a positive social/environmental impact.
  • focus on entrepreneurship and support for promising student teams who want to continue to develop their technologies and business models after participation in the proposed course/program.
  • A plan for continuation (and financial sustainability) of the course or program post-NCIIA-funding.
  • An emphasis on experiential learning-by-doing and creative pedagogical approaches to solving real world problems. 

NCIIA encourages proposals that involve students and advisors from engineering, science, business, design, and liberal arts disciplines, as well as groups traditionally underrepresented in invention, innovation, and entrepreneurship, including women and minorities.
