Node Sponsorship to NSF I-Corps Teams


The UNY Node will award 12 ‘non-traditional’ teams sponsorship and a $30,000 grant to participate in the national NSF I-Corps Teams program. Successful applicants will be strong teams with innovative STEM technology, who are not otherwise eligible for the traditional I-Corps academic track, as defined by the I-Corps Teams Solicitation (currently NSF 18-515).

Two kinds of teams may apply for Node sponsorship:

University-based researchers who do not have an industry mentor for their I-Corps team.

Startup companies with a reasonable university connection. This includes recent graduates, active alums, and teams at university-affiliated incubator and accelerator programs.

Applications are currently closed. Register to receive updates on our next round of applications.
