The Illinois Innovation Prize (IIP) for $20,000 is awarded annually to a creative and passionate student working towards solutions that could have a positive societal impact.

The Fiddler Innovation Fellowship for $10,000 from Jerry Fiddler and Melissa Alden is an annual student scholarship awarded by eDream to an undergraduate student who shows promise of significant, innovative achievements. Jerry Fiddler believes that the most interesting and urgent problems and opportunities often lie “between the cracks”. This award supports innovations that address cultural or global challenges that incorporate creativity, the arts/design, and technology into interdisciplinary solutions.
