Application Deadline Extended until Oct. 24

Thank you to all of the teams who have been working very hard on their applications to the Cornell Cup USA, presented by Intel. We are certainly looking forward to reviewing your inventive entries!

Due to the significant number of requests to extend today’s deadline with many teams citing they only recently learned of the competition, we are extending the deadline by one week to Wednesday Oct. 24 at 11:59 p.m. (PDT). New teams who have yet to fill out the online Team Interest Form will also still be welcome to apply. We feel this will give everyone the best chance to present their ideas and have their entries be judged fairly on their true merits.

This will be the only extension offered and those teams that have already submitted an application are welcome to continue to polish and resubmit their applications. In the past it has also been very clear as to which teams have reviewed the Sample Application and Application Criteria available on the competition web site on the Team Info/Resources page and we highly encourage everyone to do so.

In order to help with any questions, we also will be offering two final online information sessions at the following times below.

On behalf of the entire Cornell Cup USA, presented by Intel team and all of our sponsors, we thank you for the excitement and creativity that we have been hearing about from all of you and we are truly excited ourselves to be a part of this empowering opportunity. We are all greatly looking forward to reviewing your applications in just one week!
