Bakar Prize

Bakar Prize

The Bakar Prize is awarded to select Bakar Fellows to bridge proof-of-concept to startup and commercialization for particularly promising technologies.

Nearing successful completion of a Spark Award project, Faculty Fellows will be invited to apply for the Bakar Prize.

Interested applicants will submit a project description, a proposed budget and timeline, and present the project to a selection committee. Recipients can spend the award over several years.
