Free Webinar — Secrets to Fundraising for Competing in NASA Challenges
NASA has several exciting technical challenges open for universities and colleges. The challenges include the Student Launch, the Robotic Mining Competition, the Human Exploration Rover Challenge, the X-Hab Academic Innovation Challenge, as well other challenges. In order to be successful, teams not only need to master engineering and technical obstacles, they must also raise the funding necessary for equipment and travel expenses.
To help all universities and colleges interested in competing, the NASA Minority Innovation Challenges Institute, or MICI, is hosting a free webinar on Sept. 10, 2014, at 3 p.m. EDT. Topics covered during the session will include:
– Fundraising practices utilized by teams that competed in the 2014 NASA Robotic Mining Competition.
– How to locate potential donors, and the best way to land contributions.
– How to use crowdfunding websites to expand fundraising efforts to regional and national levels.
– Grant opportunities that are open and receptive to funding university teams.
The webinar will be hosted by a certified fundraising executive along with two certified grant writers.
