Grants of up to $30,000 to USA colleges and universities to enhance innovation and entrepreneurship curriculum. Applicants must receive institutional approval prior to applying. Funding is intended to support the development or transformation of classes and programs to help students develop novel, STEM-based inventions and gain the necessary entrepreneurial skills needed to bring these ideas to market.
VentureWell awards grants to colleges and universities for the purpose of strengthening existing curricular programs and/or building new courses and programs that engage student teams in developing and pursuing scalable solutions to real-world needs through I&E.
The Spring 2021 Sustainable Design Faculty Grants cycle will support faculty and staff who are committed to cultivating I&E dedicated to positive social impact and environmental sustainability, and will integrate sustainable design concepts tools, and frameworks into their I&E curriculum. VentureWell is seeking proposals with innovative ideas related to the development of new courses and programs, or to strengthening existing courses and programs, that incorporate key sustainable design concepts with the end goal of developing novel inventions and technologies. Special consideration will be given to proposals that demonstrate clear support for student innovations that are dedicated to climate change solutions (i.e. mitigation and/or adaptation; see Appendix for definitions), as well as innovations to existing products or systems that address an opportunity to become carbon neutral or net zero energy, or reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, pollution, and waste.
Proposals may include plans for creating or improving an individual course, course sequence, minor, major, certificate program or other co- and extracurricular programs that support I&E focused course and program efforts.
