About the Grainger Computing Innovation Prize

The 2nd Annual Grainger Computing Innovation Prize calls on Illinois Tech students to develop creative technology solutions to the most challenging problems facing our society today. The “Computing with Data for Social Good” theme for the 2022 competition aims to tackle real-world problems in education, health, energy, public safety, transportation, economic development, sustainable smart infrastructure, and climate change.

Students are encouraged, through interdisciplinary teams, to leverage their skills in computing, big data, data science, and artificial intelligence toward creative and impactful uses of technology to improve the world. Successful entries must include some aspect of computing and demonstrate the work’s potential societal impact.

The competition will take place over the fall 2022 semester.

Tackle these challenging problems to win your share of a total of $30,000 in prizes:
1st Place Team: $15,000
2nd Place Team: $10,000
3rd Place Team: $5,000

The Grainger Computing Innovation Prize was established through a generous endowed gift from The Grainger Foundation, an independent, private foundation based in Lake Forest, Illinois, that provides substantive support to a broad range of organizations, including educational, medical, cultural, and human services institutions.
