3D Hubs is accepting applications from students around the world for the 3D Hubs Student Grant 2017. They are looking for inventors, problem solvers, and creative talents in STEAM subjects that push the boundaries of 3D printing.
The grant is offered in three fields - engineering, product design, and architecture - to students who can showcase the Best Use of 3D Printing in the specified academic fields. The three successful applicants will receive:
- $500 cash
- An honorable mention from Brian Garret (3D Hubs cofounder) on Linkedin
- A professional photo shoot of their project for their portfolio
Brian Garret explains the importance of students and supporting STEAM education: “Students are the engineers and designers of the future. With this grant, as well as our existing student program that provides 25% off, we aim to give students a strong foundation in digital manufacturing early on to give them a competitive edge in their future careers.”
Great examples of 3D printing done by students are Eindhoven’s Mark Thielen who is creating a new future of medical training, Delft’s Jonas Holtermann driving innovation for formula students, or the team from the University of Colorado Boulder making new ways for blind children to read.
For more inspiration on student projects, follow 3D Hubs Instagram. Throughout April, May, and June, they’ll be showcasing the best submissions.
Rhino users are welcome to take part with their models.
Applications close on June 30, and awardees will be announced on July 15.
