Make an Impact on College Students Who are Bringing New Solutions to Life

With your support, the Collegiate Inventors Competition® (CIC) encourages creativity and entrepreneurship in college and university student inventors by giving them access to unique and valuable opportunities. From receiving an all-expenses-paid trip to compete at the invention competition in Washington, D.C., to networking and receiving one-on-one feedback from Hall of Famers, your gift makes it possible for collegiate inventors to enjoy an unparalleled experience. Additionally, winners in both Undergraduate and Graduate categories are awarded a USPTO acceleration certificate.

There are also opportunities for corporate giving.
