Team Formativity, IIA: Education Grand Prize + Audience Choice Winners, 2016


The Team. The Team. The Team.

Here at Michigan, we know better than most that the best outcomes are all about the team. We are, after all, one of the most collaborative learning communities in the nation (not to mention that we have a few über-successful sports teams).

So, first double check that your team and idea meets our eligibility requirements. Next, fill out the Application Form and sign up for an interview when prompted. Each application will be reviewed to ensure it meets the eligibility criteria.
