The Lenore Blum Innovation Fund, named in honor of the founder of the Project Olympus Incubator Program, provides support for initiatives promoting diversity within the program. Project Olympus bridges the gap between cutting-edge university research and economy-promoting commercialization for the benefit of our communities.
Project Olympus provides startup advice, micro-grants, incubator space, and connections for faculty and students across campus and with the wider regional, national, and global business communities. We help students, faculty, alumni, and staff turn their cutting-edge research and great ideas into startups.
The Olympus Spark Grant Fund helps Olympus student startup projects kick-start their business ideas. Every semester, students submit proposals and pitch their ideas to investors, with winning projects going on to receive funds. The funds are provided by charitable gifts from alumni and other community donors.
Your donation to HackCMU supports the student-run 24-hour hackathon, hosted annually by ACM@CMU, that unites students from across campus and challenges them to make something awesome.
Gifts to SCS TartanHacks support CMU's annual undergrad-only hackathon, which also attracts students from other colleges and universities.
Support gender equality, diversity and inclusion in computer science by donating to Women@SCS, our student-run organization that creates, encourages and supports academic, social and professional opportunities for women in CS.
CMU's student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery provides career development, training and a social outlet for our students. When you support this fund, you help prepare students for life beyond CMU and provide vital experience they need for their careers.
