CGI U application deadline Jan. 30

The final application deadline for students interested in participating in the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) is Wednesday, Jan. 30.

President Bill Clinton launched CGI U in 2007 to engage the next generation of leaders on college campuses around the world. The annual CGI U meeting brings together students, youth organizations, topic experts and celebrities to discuss and develop innovative solutions to pressing global challenges.

Up to 200 WUSTL undergraduate, graduate and professional students will be selected to participate in CGI U, which will be held April 5-7 on campus.

For thorough review, WUSTL students are strongly encouraged to submit their applications online prior to the final deadline.

Students may apply as individuals or in groups up to four. Selected participants will be able to further develop their commitments over the course of the CGI U meeting, with support and insight from international experts.
