The E-Team Program

Apply Link & Application Guidelines

I’m Ready To Apply! Should I Start an Application for Pioneer (Stage 1) or Propel (Stage 2)?

  • Student teams who are new to the program enter at Pioneer for E-Teams, the first stage of the program; there are no exceptions. If you have not received a Pioneer for E-Teams grant ($5,000) or participated in the Pioneer workshop, please be sure to start a Pioneeer for E-Teams application.
  • Teams who have received a Pioneer for E-Teams grant and have successfully completed the Pioneer workshop should apply to Propel for E-Teams, the second stage in the E-Team Program.
  • See our Frequently Asked Questions page for more helpful guidance and tips for applying
