What is THINK?
THINK is an annual nationwide initiative that encourages students to share their innovative and impactful STEM projects that we fund to guide an idea of a product/system into a completed project. THINK strives to advance technological breakthroughs starting at an early age and provide a technical voice for the youth who can one day change the world. The program is organized by a group of undergraduates at MIT.
How do I apply?
Students are expected to submit a proposal (of no more than 10 pages) before the application deadline detailing the problem they are attempting to solve, how their idea/system combats the target problem, developmental procedure, a timetable of milestones, and budget allocation (see the guidelines section below for a full description).
What are the benefits?
Chosen finalists are invited on an all-expenses paid trip to the MIT campus, where they meet professors in their field of interest, tour labs, get to know the THINK team, and the members who will become their project mentors. Throughout the development of the project, THINK mentors meet with finalists on a weekly basis for technical guidance, helpful resources, and updates on the project's progress.
