Grants of up to $30,000 to USA colleges and universities to promote science and technology innovation and entrepreneurship. Applicants must receive institutional approval prior to applying. Focus areas may include biomedical and healthcare innovation, general (science- and technology-based) entrepreneurship, sustainable technologies (new materials, clean tech, green energy, and chemistry innovation), technologies that address poverty alleviation and basic human needs, and climate change solutions (technology to mitigate and/or adapt to climate change), especially technologies that support communities most impacted by climate change.
VentureWell Course & Program Grants (formerly called “Faculty Grants”) are awarded to faculty or staff at US higher education institutions to support curriculum that engages students in science and technology innovation and entrepreneurship.
C&P grants may be used to strengthen existing curricular programs or to build new, pedagogically inclusive courses and programs that engage student teams in developing and pursuing scalable solutions to real world needs through science and technology (S&T) and innovation and entrepreneurship (I&E). The end goal is to support diverse groups of faculty, staff, and students in collaborating to develop novel inventions and technologies that have positive social and environmental impact.
Activities supported by C&P grants should lead to effective courses and programs that are sustained by the institution, lead to the formation of student teams (ideally involved with the VentureWell E-Team Program), and expand opportunities for learning across science and technology innovation and entrepreneurship.
