ProjX is a branch of TechX that provides up to $500 in funding for students every semester, helping students bring their dream projects
to life and giving them the chance to demo their creations at the annual xFair and ProjXpo.
Applications for the Fall 2018 funding cycle are now closed.
Spring applications will open in February!
Applications for the Fall 2018 cycle open on Monday, September 17 and close on Sunday, September 30.
You can apply/login to your ProjX account here.
We judge projects on three main factors:
(1) Creativity and novelty.
Is the project feasible in the time frame?
(3) Educational value. Will the student learn something?
We believe in empowering students to explore and develop their ideas, so we will evaluate each application independently of others. Therefore, a student can be on multiple teams; however, each student may only be the lead member of one team.
There are many resources on campus for side projects and entrepreneurship! Check out the Martin Trust Center, Sandbox Fund, StartLabs, Dorm Room Fund, Rough Draft VC, Clean Energy Prize, Climate CoLab, GFSA, IDEAS Global, MIT CHIEF, and more.
Members of the ProjX committee with significant technical experience may provide mentorship and advice for your project, and we can also connect you with someone in our network of volunteer mentors. Mentors can be previous ProjX participants, graduate students, or even faculty/staff.
