UChicago App Challenge

UChicago App Challenge

Have you experienced an unmet need or opportunity in your everyday life (at work, in your research, at home or elsewhere)? Are you working on a research project that might benefit from an app, a website, or cognitive computing? Are you already working on an idea with UChicago (e.g. I-Corps, BIG, ITM) and want to build some part of it? Not sure?

The UChicago App Challenge, run by IT Services in partnership with the Polsky Center, helps you translate that idea or observation into a mobile app, great website or something else (surprise us)! Students, faculty, staff, alums and now Polsky members can submit their ideas year round. IT Services does the heavy lifting to build your idea, which could be awarded $10,000 in prizes.

Complete information on eligibility, requirements, applications, and past projects can be found by visiting the App Challenge website.
