2012 National Security Innovation Competition

Open to all US and Canadian undergraduate and graduate students

The purpose of this competition is to stimulate college student interest to address national security problem solving by exposing their university-sponsored projects to a broad audience including industry, academic, and government organizations involved in aerospace, defense, security, and first responder activities. Students will demonstrate their critical analytical skills to determine why their new concept or technology has the potential to meet an identifiable national security need. Up to ten finalist teams will be selected from all applicants to make presentations in front of a national panel of judges. The top three projects will be chosen and prizes awarded.

Scholarship Grants awarded to top three winners

1st Prize - $10,000

2nd Prize - $5,000

3nd Prize - $2,500

Tech scouts from across industry will be attending to provide potential opportunities to further project development, funding, and student internships. The projects must be student led and the concept or technology must not currently be licensed to any business.
