Dear Barry and April, 
I hope this email finds you well.  
As a recent recipient of NCIIA sponsorship funds, I would like to encourage you to share this opportunity for Advanced E-Team funding with your network. 

NCIIA's  Advanced E-Team grants deadline is just 4 weeks away, on Friday, December 4. 
Advanced E-Team grants fund up to $20,000 to help student teams take their innovative ideas out of the classroom and/or lab to prototype, and eventually to market.  Students can leverage NCIIA funds to launch a venture if their idea includes technological innovation, commercial potential, and positive social impact. Teams must be comprised of at least two graduate or undergraduate students, and a faculty advisor. 

Here are some helpful links:
Advanced E-Team Grant Information:

Please include information about this grant opportunity in any upcoming bulletins, newsletters, and forums and help us get the word out to any students you know who are developing innovative technologies! We'd welcome the opportunity to review proposal abstracts or have conversations with anyone who might be interested in applying.

All the best, 
Rachel Agoglia
