Raising Competition and Award Funds
Raising prize money is especially important since the Competition expects to give significant 1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards in each of three research categories. Competing teams will be awarded incentive funds upon completion of a (rigorous) registration process, at a mid-point (upon meeting milestones), and to cover some travel costs of teams invited to the next ISDC to accept their winning awards.Contributions can be made in either of two ways:
- You can contribute to the International SunSat Design Competition by clicking the Indiegogo Campaign below...
- Donations can be made via the Ohio University CASHNet secure donation form. I can certify that this contribution will not put you on any Ohio University or other solicitation list that is under out control.
Five individuals, organizations or businesses making a tax deductible contribution of $10,000 each will bring us half-way to our goal. You will, thereby, have made a gift of education that will bring tangible and on-going benefits to the future of our planet.
If you are interested in becoming a SunSat Design Competition sponsor, you are invited to have a discussion with me.

Your personal gift to the Ohio University International SunSat Design Competition may be matched by your employer.
If you think this may be a possibility, please contact your human resources department. If so, complete the form and send it along with your donation. Ohio University will certify on that form that it has received the gift and that the gift meets the company’s guidelines for matching funds. This form will be retuned to your company.
After your company verifies your eligibility, it will send its check to the SunSat Design Competition at Ohio University.
I can certify that this contribution will not put you on any Ohio University or other solicitation list under SunSat Design control.
Thank you for your support.
