Applications Due Feb. 17 for NSF I-Corps Node Short Course at UR

The NSF I-Corps Upstate New York (UNY) Node is offering a short course program for researchers interested in exploring the market potential of their work and learning entrepreneurial skills. Short Courses—geared toward faculty, doctoral candidates, and postdocs—are offered at no cost to participants and consist of both in-person and remote meetings over a two-week period. Short Course graduates receive National Science Foundation (NSF) lineage and are able to apply to other NSF grant awards, including the National I-Corps Teams program, which carries a grant award up to $50,000. Previous NSF funding is not required to apply. The next Short Course will kick off at the University of Rochester for half-day sessions on Friday, February 21, and Saturday, February 22; followed by web conference meetings on February 26 and March 4 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.; and will conclude on Friday, March 6. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Candidates must apply online by February 17. Contact the Ain Center for Entrepreneurship with questions or to learn more.
