MIT Solve Announces 2024 Global Challenges and Indigenous Communities Fellowship

Over $1 million in prize funding available for winners

CAMBRIDGE, MA / ACCESSWIRE / February 1, 2024 / MIT Solve, an initiative of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, believes that to achieve a more sustainable and equitable future for all, we need new voices and solutions. Today, it announced the 2024 Global Challenges and the Indigenous Communities Fellowship to find and scale the best.

Solve invites anyone from anywhere in the world to submit a solution to this year's Global Challenges by April 18. Solve is seeking solutions that use technology in innovative and equitable ways to make learning more inclusive, mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis, improve access to quality health care, build peaceful and prosperous economies, and strengthen Indigenous communities.

The selected innovators will form the 2024 Solver Class, pitch their solutions during UN General Assembly Week, and share over $1 million of available funding. Innovators also take part in a nine-month support program that includes capital, leadership, and community support to scale their solutions.

"MIT Solve is on a quest to find the amazing innovators solving the pressing challenges of their communities and the world. And once we select the best, we mobilize the Solve community to help them scale," says Hala Hanna, Executive Director of MIT Solve. "We can't do this without our generous and foresighted supporters."

The funding available for selected Solvers and Fellows includes:

  • MIT Solve $10,000 to each Solver and Fellow selected
