NCIIA: funding and training to advance your projects

NCIIA funds faculty from member institutions (BSU is a member institution) whose programs and projects encourage innovation and invention among students, and whose work benefits people and the environment.

Course and Program Grants
Course and Program grants are awarded to institutions to strengthen existing curricular programs or build new courses and programs in invention, innovation, and technology entrepreneurship, with an increasing emphasis on environmental and social entrepreneurship.
