The Clinton Foundation, Clinton Global Initiative calls application for COVID-19 Student Action Fund. CGI U launched the COVID-19 Student Action Fund on April 18, 2020, at the CGI U At Home virtual event hosted by President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton. This fund will identify and support select students at universities around the world who are committed to addressing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Funding and Benefits 

Working within the CGI U Commitment to Action model, this fund will provide at least $100,000 in total funding to students, with each grant awarded ranging from $2,000 to $5,000. In addition to receiving seed funding for their commitments, all selected students will receive invitations to participate in the CGI U 2021 program, including an invitation to attend the CGI U 2021 annual event at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland from April 9-11, 2021.
