Do you have a Big Idea? Come and learn about Amazon Catalyst! 

Amazon Catalyst is a new a program supported by, CoMotion and the Office of Research to fund bold, disruptive, solution-focused projects proposed by members of the UW community.  Grants will be awarded for projects that take place over a period of several months to up to two years, and will range from $10,000 to $100,000 each (yes, you read that right – we’re awarding up to $100,000 per project).  All you need is an idea for how to solve a big problem in the world, and the passion to make it a reality.  UW students, faculty and staff from *all* disciplines are encouraged to apply.
