Lemelson-MIT Program

The Lemelson-MIT Program recognizes outstanding inventors and inspires young people to pursue creative lives and careers through invention. Two major endeavors aim to fulfill this mission: the Lemelson-MIT Awards and InvenTeam initiative.

The Lemelson-MIT Awards recognize the profound impact that inventors can have on economic and social well-being; they include the $500,000 Lemelson-MIT Prize, and National Collegiate Student Prize Competition.

Lemelson-MIT InvenTeams are teams of high school students, teachers, and mentors that receive grants up to $10,000 each to invent technological solutions to real-world problems. The InvenTeam initiative aims to excite high school students about invention through science, technology, engineering, and math; empower students to problem solve; and encourage an inventive culture in schools and communities.
