UCLA Innovation Fund 2022 Competition 


The UCLA Innovation Fund is a proof-of-concept program designed to facilitate the commercialization of advanced UCLA-owned technologies.

Funding will be in the range of $50-$150k per project to support commercialization activities not supported by basic research grants. Projects with significant commercial potential may apply for an exemption for funding up to $200k.
