What is CIC?

The Collegiate Inventors Competition was founded in 1990 to encourage and drive innovation and entrepreneurship at the collegiate level. The Competition brings together the nation’s brightest college minds to showcase, recognize, and award their cutting-edge research and discovery.

A panel of experts not only judge the Finalists’ entries, but also provide feedback, brainstorming, and encouragement needed to take inventions to the next level of innovation. And contestants compete for cash and prizes, too. In fact, over the last 27 years, with the help of our sponsors, we have awarded over $1 million to 183 of the country’s most innovative collegiate students.

And the next one could be you!

2018 submissions close June 8.
