Student project teams representing the Cornell Engineering may apply for CEAA sponsorship. This includes interdisciplinary teams that include one or more Cornell Engineering students.
As part of the application process, teams will be asked to provide information about the team/project, request an amount, and explain what the money will be used for. Teams may request money in increments of $500, with a maximum of $2000 in any single academic year. CEAA’s student liaison committee will review applications, make selections, and present those recommendations to the CEAA president, who will then seek approval from the executive committee.
In the past year CEAA awarded a total of $8,000 in sponsorship grants, which was split between the following Cornell Engineering student project teams:
- Baja SAE
- Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (CUAUV)
- CU Satellite (CUSat)
- Formula SAE (FSAE)
- Mars Rover Team
- Violet Satellite Project
Gift-in-Kind Sponsorship Needs
As part of the sponsorship application process, teams identified gift-in-kind donations that would help them with their respective projects. If you can help or have questions regarding the items listed below contact Rebecca Macdonald, the Swanson Director of Student Project Teams.
- Alumni advisors/SME
- Supplies or software to assist in exploring alternative engineering materials
Cornell University Autonomous Underwater Vehicle
- Testing facilities such as water tunnels or wave tanks in order to ensure consistent performance between the lake and the pool
- Help from alumni with HAM Amateur Radio licenses, preferably with experience in AMSAT communication - students want alumni to set up ground stations across the country
- Pick-up truck to transport car
Mars Rover Team
- Electrical components and tools
Violet Satellite Project
- Soldering equipment, lab power supplies, multi-meters, and computers
Information about sponsorship applications for the 2015-2016 academic year will be sent to eligible students teams, as identified by Engineering Undergraduate Programs, toward the end of the fall 2015 semester. In the meantime, questions can be directed to CEAA.
