UCLA I-Site Team Requirements
The UCLA Head Start Management Fellows Program is a partner in the National Center on Program Management and Fiscal Operations (NCPMFO), which is funded by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Office of Head Start.
You can apply with a full team consisting of an Entrepreneurial Lead, Academic Lead and Industry Mentor.*
The “Entrepreneurial Lead” can be a Post-Doctoral scholar, professional staff, graduate student, undergraduate or other student, with relevant knowledge of the technology and a commitment to investigating the commercial landscape surrounding the innovation.
The “Academic Lead” will be responsible for overall project management. The Academic Lead must have an academic appointment that normally qualifies them to submit proposals or play the role of PI in subsequent submissions to NSF.
The “Industry Mentor” will typically be an experienced or emerging entrepreneur with proximity to the institution and experience in transitioning technology out of academic labs. The UCLA I-Corps Site Team Selection Committee members will facilitate mentorship introductions.
*If you don’t have an Academic Lead or Industry Mentor, you may still apply.
