CGI U 2019-2020

06/09/19

We are inviting student social innovators to apply to the Clinton Initiative University (CGI U) 2019-2020 program. We are looking to identify and support students with an interest in forestry who are using their skills to make a difference, and we would greatly appreciate it if you could notify students at University of Belgrade of this opportunity. University of Belgrade has a great forestry department which is why we are reaching out. Pending your availability, it would be great to discuss this opportunity in more detail via phone.

CGI U is a year-round program that provides students with the tools needed to develop social impact projects through a rigorous curriculum, high-touch mentorship, and a range of funding opportunities. Acceptance into CGI U also includes an invitation to a free three-day summit hosted by President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, to take place at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland from April 17-19, 2020. At this meeting, approximately 600 student leaders from around the world will come together to hear from a wide range of topic experts, leaders, and innovators to discuss how to turn their ideas into tangible action.

If you know any students that might be interested in this opportunity, we hope that you will share this with your networks through our social media toolkit and nominate students who might be worthy candidates.

Additionally, we would welcome your engagement with our University Network, a consortium of colleges and universities that support, mentor, and provide seed funding to leading student innovators and entrepreneurs on their respective campuses.

The deadline for students to apply is Tuesday, October 15, 2019, and students interested in travel assistance must apply by Monday, September 30, 2019.
