The Clinton Global Initiative University has launched the CGI U Innovation Fund. This is a new competition that aims to source, support and feature entreprenurial minded innovators and leaders who attend college by providing early stage seed funding for unique and enterprising projects. Scholars that are chosen in this process will receive funding to advance projects that fit the CGI's Commitment to Action Model. The chosen scholars will also receive an invitation to attend CGI U 2017.
The Innovation fund is open to any student 18 years of age or older who is currently enrolled in an institute of higher education. This would include part-time, full-time, graduate or undergraduate students.
Prospective applicants can submit their project ideas at the online application here. The deadline for pre-applications is Monday, June 27, 2016. Please note that only pre-applicants whose project best fit the selected criteria will be invited to submit a full application in July 2016.
