We are excited to announce that the CGI U 2016 meeting will take place at UC Berkeley next spring from April 1-3, 2016. The ninth annual CGI U meeting, hosted by President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, will gather more than 1,000 innovative student leaders to make Commitments to Action that address some of the world’s most pressing challenges. More than $750,000 in funding will be available to select CGI U 2016 students to help them turn their ideas into action.

Applicants must be 18 years of age or older and enrolled in an institution of higher education at the time of the CGI U meeting in order to apply. The early decision and travel assistance deadline is October 16, 2015, and the final application deadline is December 1, 2015. Program details and featured speakers will be announced at a later date.
