Attention all OSU Faculty and Graduate Student Researchers!
The OSU Advantage Accelerator is seeking applications for projects that further develop technologies invented by OSU faculty, staff, and/or graduate students in any research discipline (i.e., ag science, pharmacy, vet med, education, public health, engineering, forestry, earth, ocean, atmospheric science, etc.). Applications should indicate how the project will move the technology closer to commercialization and will be accepted now through Friday, September 29.
Each project may be awarded up to $15,000 and should span 6 months or less, beginning October 1st, 2023.
Funding can be used to fund student time, gather additional data, pay for prototyping expenses (materials and supplies), customer discovery, and more. Award recipients are required to participate in the OSU Accelerate program (9-week hybrid program offered October-December 2023) in order to receive training and guidance with respect to tech commercialization. Successful projects are eligible to receive additional funding. More information is available here: https://advantage.oregonstate.edu/advantage-accelerator/funding-opportunities/aid-fund
Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Melissa Ward or Molly Arnowil to briefly discuss their proposed project before applying. They can be reached via email or drop in during their office hours: Thursdays from 9am – noon, room 322A in the Kerr Administration Building.
