Clinton Global Initiative U. Invites Student Applications

Thought some student NCDDers might be interested in this…

The Clinton Global Initiative, a nonpartisan initiative of the William J. Clinton Foundation, is accepting applications from college students for the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) 2009 meeting.

CGI U is dedicated to the distinct potential that young people and higher educational institutions have to make a difference on their campuses and around the world. President Clinton will host the second annual meeting of CGI U at the University of Texas at Austin, February 13-15, 2009. Building on the success of CGI U 2008 in New Orleans, the meeting will bring together young leaders, university presidents, and activists to address pressing global challenges in the areas of education, energy and climate change, global health, human rights and peace, and poverty alleviation.

The deadline for early decision applications is November 7, 2008. The final deadline for applications is December 12, 2008. Attending CGI U is free, and travel assistance is available for those who qualify. CGI U actively seeks a range of students who have a variety of experiences, interests, talents, and goals.

In order to attend, all students must make a commitment to a new, measurable plan for addressing a specific problem on their campuses or around the world. Visit the CGI website for complete program information.
