The Illinois Innovation Prize (IIP) for $20,000 is awarded annually to a creative and passionate student working towards solutions that could have a positive societal impact. This student is a creative and passionate innovator, is working on a novel innovation with the potential to create a positive impact , and inspires others. Innovations developed as a response to the pandemic are encouraged as this illustrates the power of innovation during times of ambiguity and uncertainty.
Jerry Fiddler believes that the most interesting and urgent problems and opportunities often lie “between the cracks”. This $10,000 award supports innovations that address cultural or global challenges that incorporate creativity, the arts/design, and technology into interdisciplinary solutions. The Fiddler Innovation Fellowship is part of an endowment from Jerry Fiddler and Melissa Alden to the University of Illinois in support of the Emerging Digital Research and Education in Arts Media (eDream) Institute, which is based at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA).
