Where can I find non-dilutive funding options for students?

First, check out these two other sections in the knowledge base that covers fundraising via crowdfunding and via applying for grants, prizes and accelerators.

Second, Ali Afri, a product manager formerly associated with General Catalyst, has compiled this list of resources for students looking for money in 2016. Some are equity free or non-dilutive - others involve traditional equity-based convertible notes. Note that Trust Center does not maintain this list, nor do we endorse any of the funding sources - this link is provided for the convenience of student entrepreneurs only.


MIT students looking for MIT-specific options may find a partial list of competitions and grants at the bottom of this page. In most cases, you must be a current MIT student to apply.
