    I want to, even though there is a super tough competetion for the prize money (I just want to do something). The deadline however, is on June 14. No time for that now.

  2. Fleeb says:

    Yup, the money is the motivation. I know how to do these things, but I am not an expert-professional… yet.

    Fleeb, it’s not a competition. As long as you join and finish a single project, you are entitled to the prize. Fine print says that “each” student gets the $4,500.

    The deadline is for the application only so you still have lots of time.

  4. Fleeb says:

    Wow, but… I am doing my thesis right now and the deadline is next month. I still do not have enough time of making that project. :(

  5. Fleeb says:

    Having read some Q&A, there is still a chance that one’s proposal won’t get picked upon applying.

  6. yuga says:

    Still worth a try. ;)

  7. Fleeb says:

    Woah! Now they got a lot of mentoring organizations.

    It could be more beneficial if they have have provided a list of important projects they are currently planning for–however are open to proposals for other projects and ideas.
