Come learn about Amazon Catalyst at UW and how it can help you launch your big idea. Snacks will be served!
Amazon Catalyst is an award program that helps UW students, staff, and faculty launch their big ideas. Offered through a collaboration between Amazon and UW CoMotion, initial awards are $25,000, given to individuals or teams that want to pursue solutions to real-world problems and make a positive impact.

Awardees – Amazon Catalyst Fellows – receive money, mentorship, and connections with like-minded innovators. Once Fellows complete the first phase of their project, they can apply for additional funding of up to $75,000. Awards are not limited to science and engineering projects. Applications based in virtually any discipline, including the humanities, social sciences, and the arts are encouraged.

Past winners include self-driving bikes, sustainable charcoal, a biosensor for pancreatic cancer, and a social program that dissolves stereotypes (KUOW’s popular “Ask a _” series). The application is straightforward and simple – just 20 questions. Got a big idea that could change the world? Got a small idea that could have a huge impact? Apply for an Amazon Catalyst award.
