GOLDrush, the University of Iowa’s official crowdfunding platform, is seeking proposals from faculty, staff, and students for projects that support research, education or engagement and generally require no more than $10,000 in funding.


Interested groups should have a strong idea, a small team of people to help manage the campaign, and a “crowd” of friends, family, or other people who might be willing to contribute to their campaigns.
