I’m excited to share the news that President Clinton will host the next meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) at Arizona State University from Friday, March 21 - Sunday, March 23, 2014. This meeting is free to attend and will bring together student leaders and innovators from around the world, and we encourage you to share this opportunity with students on your campus. To date, over $400,000 in funding is available for select CGI U 2014 attendees.
In order to apply, CGI U students are required to develop a Commitment to Action: a new, specific, and measurable plan to address a challenge in one of CGI U’s five focus areas: education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation, and public health. Accepted students will have the opportunity to attend CGI U 2014, where they will hear from experts in the field, develop practical skills, identify potential partners, and formulate concrete plans of action for the months ahead.
To be considered for early acceptance and travel assistance to CGI U, students must apply online at cgiu.org byFriday, November 22, 2013. The final application deadline will be Friday, January 17, 2014. For more information, join us online every Wednesday, from 6:00-6:30 PM ET to participate in a virtual information session.
