AMAZON CATALYST RETURNS - WITH A TWIST!

In 2015, Amazon teamed up with CoMotion at the University of Washington to announce Amazon Catalyst, a program that helps students, faculty, and staff launch truly innovative ideas. To date, Amazon Catalyst has funded 50 UW teams -  Amazon Catalyst Fellows - across a range of disciplines.

This year, we are trying something different. To tightly focus inspiration on the pressing issues of our time, this round of Catalyst will be based on specific themes: Urban Transportation and Computational Social Science (i.e. using data and computing analysis, like machine learning and simulation, to address social problems).

  • Open to UW students, faculty, and staff from all campuses.
  • Ideas from all disciplines welcome.
  • It’s a project fund, not a research fund. Be ready to run with and truly build your idea!
  • Themes: Urban Transportation and Computational Social Science.
  • Solutions should focus on scalability and positive social impact.
  • Awards will be up to $10,000.
  • Project timeline: six months.
  • Application is simple and straightforward: only 20 questions.
  • Deadline: May 31, 2019.
