The goal of our fellowship program is to encourage members of under-represented groups to participate in an educational experience where they will learn about innovation and commercialization processes while participating in an I-Corps Cohort.
There are 2 types of fellowships available:
Team Member: Supporting role on team, willing to learn, assist with worksheets, customer discovery question creation and interviews, presentations, etc. Fellows will participate with the team on their customer discovery journey.
Cohort and Ecosystem: (For returning Fellows)
Supports I-Corps Leadership Team, will observe and contribute to cohort activities including digital communications, online event management, or other items that align with interest and expertise. Will support other fellows in the cohort. The Cohort fellow helps increase the profile of I-Corps within the region.
Interested parties must apply; those under consideration will have a short phone interview with members of our leadership team. Selected fellows will receive a Fellowship Stipend.
My opinions were valued even though I was the youngest member of the team. I learned how to conduct professional interviews and to be brief. I am definitely more passionate about getting a patent.”— Chloe Conover, I-Corps Fellow
