Question by ava: How to get a good idea patented with no money for patent expenses?
I frequently have good ideas that I would love to have patented and turned into inventions. One of my ideas was used by engineering students for their senior year project.
The problem is, as with most people with good ideas, that I don’t even have the money to pay for a patent attorney or patent agent.
Are there people or organizations that will help (poor) individuals with good ideas get their ideas patented? Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

You can prepare and file a Patent application yourself. You dont HAVE to have and attorney or agent help you.
I think if you file it yourself, you will either end up with nothing, or with a patent that is so narrow it will be worthless….but you can do it.
