With the support of the Aetna Foundation, InnovateHealth Yale offers funding to student teams focused on reducing health disparities in the United States.
Two $5,000 seed awards to develop technological solutions to address health challenges that disproportionately impact low-income communities. Solutions which employ mobile technology are actively encouraged, but the prize is open to any proposed improvement involving a technological solution. Applications are open to both Yale students and students from any college or university in Connecticut. Also eligible to apply are medical residents, post-docs, and junior faculty. One seed award will be given to a team from Yale; and one to a team from one or more other colleges in CT. Winning teams must agree to compete in the $25,000 Aetna Foundation Prize for Health Equity Innovation (below). Awardees will receive mentoring to help prepare for the $25,000 Aetna prize.
Please complete the application by midnight, November 27, 2017. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
