Innovation Grants

The USITT Board of Directors is excited to announce more details about the Innovation Grants program that was approved by the Board last year. The Innovation Grants are a commitment from USITT to invest in research that will move our industry forward. The Board has approved three grant cycles with each cycle offering up to $110,000 of research funding to explore ideas that will adapt current technology for entertainment use or will create new technology for our industry.

The call is an open one, and while USITT members and member companies have preference, we want to fund the most promising ideas for innovation from across the nation. Partnerships are welcome to apply and corporate/academic partnerships are encouraged.

Applications open on April 17 and are due June 15. Winning projects will be announced in August.

USITT was founded 57 years ago as a place for the exchange of knowledge. Today we are growing as the place for quality, affordable education and training. The Innovation Grants program is a connection to our past while remaining focused on our future. Investing in the entertainment design and technology community today for tomorrow is how USITT continues to show its support for people at all points in our industry.

Please help us share the word of the Innovation Grants Program. Think big and see if you have an idea that will receive funding. For more details and application information visit http://www.usitt.org/innovationgrant/.
