Patent Award Policy

SEAS is pleased to announce a new policy to reward its faculty members for their technology transfer activities.

U.S. issued patents will be recognized with a cash award of up to $1,000 per faculty author, up to a maximum of $3,000 per patent. Funds will be split among authors, if there are more than three SEAS faculty authors. Only those in current paid SEAS appointments are eligible.

The policy will be in effect retroactive January 1, 2016.
