Starting today, 3D Hubs will be accepting applications from students around the world for the 3D Hubs Student Grant 2017. The Grant will showcase young 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. It will be awarded to students that showcase the Best Use of 3D Printing in these specified academic fields.
Brian Garret, 3D Hubs co-founder, explained 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 providing 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.”
Some examples of 3D printing projects by students are Eindhoven University of Technology’s Mark Thielen who’s creating a new future of medical training, TU Delft’s Jonas Holtermann driving innovation for Formula Student, or the team from the University of Colorado Boulder making new ways for blind children to read.
More inspiration on student projects, can be found on the 3D Hubs Instagram, where throughout the months of April, May and June they’ll be showcasing the best student submissions.
Students can apply for the Student Grant here. Applications close on June 30th, and awardees will be announced on July 15th.
