CEP Student Opportunities and Team Tuesday

Apply: Prototype Funding Application 

Prototype funding can spur development and help convey your idea to a broader audience. We have funding available to teams that are entering the Hollomon Health Innovation Challenge and/or the Alaska Airlines Environmental Innovation Challenge this year to help with creating a physical model, object, or device. Student teams are invited to apply for funds that can be used to purchase materials or components, or rent equipment necessary for demonstrating the team idea. Funds are NOT available to pay team members or consultants or hire short-term workers with high level skills beyond the team’s capacity.


Funding is open to students working in a technical, environmental, medical, consumer, digital, or another field. Awards are typically between $500 and $2,500. Application Deadline: December 6th
