Crocker Innovation Fellows is a transformative, year-length innovation experience for students from any major. Winning students will receive a $2,000 stipend and seed funding to engage five leading faculty and a cohort of the best students in applying practices of innovation. Employing ideas from design thinking, entrepreneurship, and agile software, students will learn innovation practices (Winter Semester), work for an innovative company (Summer), and develop their own innovations (Fall Semester).

"The fellowship gave us three crucial things. First, they helped us form a diverse team of creative minds. Second, they gave us mentoring from some of the most innovative professors at the Y. Third, they gave us just enough money to get to the next step. The Crocker Innovation Fellowship was the perfect environment to realize our vision for Owlet."
