About the Competition
The iCampus Student Prize recognizes the innovative and creative application of technology that improves the educational and student life experiences at MIT.
The competition builds upon the entrepreneurism and spirit of service exhibited by MIT students to solve the world’s problems by focusing attention of what might be improved closer to home in MIT’s education and student life.
The competition is open to all currently registered MIT undergraduate and graduate students, both individuals and groups. Entries must involve the use of technology to enhance life and learning at MIT, and they must be developed to the point where MIT could adopt them and make them part of our environment.
About the iCampus Prize
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology received an endowment gift of $400,000 from Microsoft Research on behalf of the iCampus research collaboration between Microsoft Research and MIT. iCampus projects demonstrated innovative applications of technology for revolutionary change throughout the Institute’s curriculum. Continuing the spirit of this collaboration, Microsoft Research endowed an award to recognize creative student projects in information technology that improve education, community, and learning. MIT gratefully acknowledges this award, and the spirit of creativity that it represents.
