Consortium sponsorship is the most frequently selected option. A consortium connects a group of sponsors with a group of Lab faculty and research staff focused on a common agenda. The cost of joining a consortium is $200,000 per year, for a minimum of three years. Consortium sponsors receive full intellectual property rights—license-fee free and royalty free—to all work developed at the Lab during their sponsorship years.
Corporate Research, for $400,000 per year, provides all the benefits of consortium sponsorship with the added benefit of an employee-in-residence at the Lab.
Graduate Fellow sponsorship, which provides the sponsor with an opportunity to connect with specific students and research groups, in areas of particular interest. The cost of supporting a fellow is $75,000 per year. Student fellows can carry the sponsor’s name, and can rotate annually.
Directed Research offers a parallel funding track to accommodate federally sponsored research and large-scale contracts.

Richard Stallman alone has probably had more productively progressive 365 day periods than the entirety of MIT's best year in that vein. MIT is excellent at producing numerical engineers, and slightly less so at creating audacious game-changing visionaries.
hey, come with me to my EE lecture, it will be awesome." I went there and this guy lecturing to a room of about 150 students held up this little chip, an Intel 8008 chip, and he extolled its virtues as the first real computer on a chip. He was right.
So, you know this chip was commissioned by a Japanese calculator manufacturer, and built at Intel in California? And it had nothing whatsoever to do with military or telco contracts?
