UNLV NSF I-Corps

The NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) is a set of activities and programs that prepare scientists and engineers to extend their focus beyond the laboratory and broadens the impact of select, NSF-funded, basic-research projects. The Center for Entrepreneurship and UNLV College of Engineering have recently earned the distinguished honor of becoming an NSF I-Corps site and was awarded a three-year, $255,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to support site activities. As an NSF I-Corps site, the Center will incubate 15 to 25 projects a year. Faculty, graduate students, undergraduate students, staff, and alumni are encouraged to apply to be part of this exciting program. 

Selected teams will receive up to $3,000 plus mentoring support for three months. Please visit the website below for more information about the application process.
