At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Apply for The Clinton Global Initiative University conference in San Diego!

The Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) is a nonprofit network aimed at student leaders and social entrepreneurs who wish to develop projects and engage in community service in areas such as environmental sustainability, education, climate change, global health, human rights, poverty alleviation and other related fields.

CGI U is currently seeking enthusiastic University students who would be interested in attending our free annual conference at University of California San Diego April 1-3 2011, hosted by President Clinton.

In order to qualify, each CGI U student member makes a Commitment to Action: a specific plan of action that addresses a pressing challenge on their campus, in their community, or around the world. The top proposals are given grants in the $3,000-$10,000 range to help achieve their goals.

The early decision deadline is November 30, 2010.
The final decision deadline is February 7, 2011.

Students will be admitted on a rolling basis. Applying and attending are free, but students must pay their travel and lodging accommodations. Limited travel and/or lodging assistance are available to those who qualify and apply by November 30. Space at CGI U 2011 will likely be filled after the early decision deadline, so we encourage you to apply early!

CGI U is proof that young people have the power to make a significant impact by confronting some of the world’s most urgent challenges.
