$100,000 competition for Cal students' best ideas
Banking on the fact that students are often as creative and impassioned as their professors, a group at the University of California, Berkeley, has put up more than $100,000 for a competition to find and fund students' best ideas.
Big Ideas is currently supporting more than 20 student projects in areas such as public policy, global public health, developing country access to essential medicines, and entrepreneurship in clean energy, biotechnology and nanotechnology.
