What is Elon Kickbox?
Elon Kickbox is (literally) a box, stuffed with guidance, resources and a $300 gift card to help you make your idea a reality.
How do I get a Kickbox?
1. Think of an idea
- It could be something that solves a problem in the world, on campus, or in your room. It could be a rough prototype or a nearly-finished product. Maybe you want to explore an idea without knowing exactly what it will become. All of those are OK.
- Need inspiration? Look at what past Elon Kickboxers have made: From custom board games and a homemade arcade to musical instruments and wireless speakers, see what Elon students made with a Kickbox last year, 2021, 2020, and more. You can also take a look at one of the United Nation’s Global Problems.
2. Find a sponsor
- Identify a faculty or staff member who supports your idea and is willing to be your Kickbox sponsor. You’ll need to meet with your sponsor before the application deadline and throughout the spring. More details about Sponsor expectations are on the Sponsor FAQs. If you need help identifying a sponsor, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Apply online
- Applications are closed for Elon Kickbox 2023.
