Q: Who's eligible?
A: You! Any St. Thomas undergraduate or graduate student may apply.
Q: How do I apply?
A: You apply directly to CGIU. But we strongly suggest that you work with our local experts first in order to improve your chances of being selected as a winner. Help sessions will be held in ASC 342 from 4:30-6PM on March 16 and 19 & April 11 and 27.
Q: What does "winning" mean?
A: If your commitment is selected, St. Thomas will fund you or up to three members of your team to travel to the CGIU meeting in October and cover all related expenses. A couple of weeks after you return, you will be interviewed by a local panel and if your commitment is chosen, the project will be awarded seed funding.
