If you wish to participate in Spring 2019 capstone program as a sponsor, please submit your project proposal online at the following link no later than Friday Jan 18th, 2019 (4PM). However, the earlier you submit your proposal the better your chances are to have proposal considered due to limited capacity.Project Proposal Application
You can expect our decision within a week max of the deadline above. Early submission may receive special consideration for earlier approvals. We will notify you immediately once our advisory team approves your proposal. Even though we have now a larger capacity than any time in the past few years, we receive a large number of projects that usually exceed our capacity.
If your project was approved, you must present the project to our students on-campus (at the Open House) and meet with them to select your team at our Sponsors Open House on Saturday Feb 09, 2019 from 12-5PM at NJIT’s Campus Center Atrium. Unfortunately, sponsors who don’t attend this open house, would normally have their projects cancelled automatically.
Sponsors are encouraged to make a contribution to support the program as a shared responsibility after receiving the email approval to NJIT Foundation (Capstone Program account index # 200094), which is tax exempt, prior to the Open House event. The fastest and preferred way to make your contribution is by using the following link.
Please be advised that sponsor contribution is not a fee for service but rather a shared responsibility of capstone expenses among all sponsors. These expenses are 100% students-driven which includes students meals, cash prizes, events resources, prints, external training needs, supplies, extended programs, etc. If your project was not selected for any reason at the open house, your contribution will be refunded upon your request.
New sponsors & first time participants are welcome to participate without having to worry about such contributions.Simply put, we do not want to make your financial support a barrier that can create a hassle for you and your organization. We want you to experience what our teams can offer to you with no per-conditions. Then you are always welcome to support the capstone program in the future. Our priority is to bring valued-added opportunities to our students and create a win-win/ hassle-free relationship with our industry partners.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated proposal, your partnership and support to our students and the capstone program. We look forward to hearing from you and meeting you soon!
