Cycle of NAM Healthy Longevity Catalyst Awards

Fall 2022 | Applications will be accepted from January 17 through February 28, 2022 at 11:59 pm EST

As part of the Healthy Longevity Global Competition, the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) is accepting applications for the 2022 cycle of its U.S.-based Catalyst Awards. Up to 25 innovators will each receive a cash prize of $50,000 plus travel costs to attend the annual Global Innovator Summit in 2023.

To help address the world’s rapidly aging population, the NAM launched the Healthy Longevity Global Competition: a three-phase awards program designed to identify and support bold, innovative, and potentially breakthrough ideas to improve health as people age. The Catalyst Awards reward exciting new or early-stage projects that have the potential to advance the field of healthy longevity and extend the human healthspan—in turn allowing individuals to live more enriching lives and stay active in their communities, families, and the workforce well into their later years.

Eligible projects aim to improve the mental, physical, or social health and well-being of individuals and can focus on any stage of life, as long as they ultimately promote health for people as they age.

US-based individuals and teams from all fields, backgrounds, industries, and specialties are encouraged to complete the simple 2-page application to be considered for a $50,000 prize. In addition to the winners, all applicants advancing to the final stages of the Catalyst Award review process are automatically considered for subsequent funding in the form of an Accelerator Award, the second phase of the Global Competition, worth $150,000 to more than $1 million USD.

To learn more, check out our 2021 informational webinar for prospective applicants, guidelines for submission, and our FAQ. For any other questions, please contact catalystawards@nas.edu with the subject line “Question – NAM Catalyst Awards.”

Apply today for a chance to share your innovative idea with the world – and transform the future of aging!

UTSA Draper Data Science Competition

April 13-15, 2022 | Applications due on January 31, 2022 | UTSA

The UTSA Draper Data Science Business Plan Competition is designed for student entrepreneurs globally to advance business ventures that use data science to create value – with the potential to change the world in which we live and work.

The competition considers data science broadly as a field of inquiry and application encompassing computing, mathematical, or statistical methods and technologies in synergy with domain expertise and big data sets to solve unmet problems.

Teams representing the student-founded and managed business ventures that participate in the Draper Competition have the opportunity to win $100,000 in cash investments in their ventures, while receiving expert guidance from mentors and judges.

Additionally, this competition gives university students an exceptional opportunity to develop marketable skills that complement their classroom knowledge. The competition supports students committed to tackling global challenges while deepening their own learning and broadening their professional skills, including leadership, teamwork and communication.
