CGI U – COVID-19 Student Action Fund

COVID-19 Student Action Fund

COVID-19 Student Action Fund

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 address the COVID-19 pandemic. 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. This action fund is geared towards projects addressing the public health, economic, and societal impacts of the novel coronavirus — with commitments ranging from awareness and prevention campaigns, to social enterprises, to infectious disease monitoring and response systems, to other emergency response initiatives that are providing immediate support for public health practitioners and other essential workers on the frontlines.

With special thanks to our supporters: Founding Partner, Kevin Xu, and our CGI University Network.

All applications must be submitted by 11:59PM ET on Wednesday, June 3, 2020.
