Product Design, Robotics, Sustainability, Transportation and Healthcare are all new applicable fields for the 2019 3D Hubs 3D Printing Student Grant competition.
3D Hubs is looking for students and recent graduates that can show how they used 3D printing to solve real-life problems in their respective fields, with a grant of $1,000 in each of the five categories to help fund their project.
Additionally, this year 3D Hubs will support the winners and finalists who are interested in turning their project into a product by showcasing their work to a global audience and by providing technical support and advice on how to go from prototyping to production.
“The reason we launched the 3D Printing Student Grant was to support the next generation of professionals who are pushing the boundaries of the technology,” said 3D Hubs CMO and co-founder Filemon Schoffer.
“The quality of projects we received in past years was above and beyond anything we could ever expect. We are excited to support the efforts of ambitious students and innovators who want to turn their idea into a product. We can’t wait to see what the next generation of designers and engineers are working on.”
The past two editions of the 3D Hubs Student Grant had more than 1,000 applicants, from 400 universities, showcasing an array of innovative and unique applications of 3D printing.
Applications close on 30 June 2019 and awardees will be announced on 17 July.
