I’m excited to share that the CGI U 2021 application is open through January 15, 2021. President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton are looking for students who are making “Commitments to Action” in education, environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation, and public health to join our global community.
Accepted students will be matched with CGI U alumni mentors, have access to funding opportunities through partners as such as Verizon and IBM, and participate in a social impact curriculum designed to help students turn their ideas into action. We are also thrilled that Howard University will co-host our virtual annual meeting this spring, where students will have exclusive access to workshops, exchange fairs, and high-profile topic experts.
