What do you mean “diverse teams”?
Good question. In an effort to engage as much of the campus as possible, seed funding will be portioned out to team based on diversity of majors. That is, if each team member is the same major, then you will receive less funding than a team where every member represents a different major.
It is important to note that if you are a double major, either major can be applied to the team registration, but not both. Be strategic!
Can I get an internship even if I don’t win?
All contestants will be considered for a Ferguson Internship! (SO to answer your question, yes, yes you can.)
