Tribal colleges encouraged to participate In the Community College Innovation Challenge

The National Science Foundation is encouraging tribally controlled colleges and other two-year Native-serving institutions to participate in the upcoming Community College Innovation Challenge.

According to the NSF, the Community College Innovation Challenge (CCIC) “is a prestigious, two-stage competition where community college teams use science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to innovate solutions to real-world problems, compete for cash awards, and earn full travel support (students and faculty) to attend an Innovation Boot Camp in Washington, D.C.”

The CCIC is an annual event in its fourth year. It is sponsored by the NSF and the American Association of Community Colleges.

Submissions will be accepted until February 14, 2018. Details can be found at
