Fellowships, Grants & Competitions

On Campus

The Clinton Global Initiative University Network is an existing consortium of colleges and universities that support, mentor and provide seed funding to student innovators and entrepreneurs on their respective campuses.

St. Thomas has become a member and agreed to provide CGI U students with a minimum of $10,000 per year (total) in funding for their Commitments to Action. These commitments, a unique feature of the CGI U model, are new, specific and measurable student projects that address some of the world’s toughest social and environmental problems. Commitments may be made in the areas of education, the environment and climate change, peace and human rights, poverty alleviation, and public health.

This year’s competition kicks off on Oct. 16 with an information session. The Fowler is an annual event organized by the Schulze School of Entrepreneurship focused on energizing the entrepreneurial spirit of St. Thomas students from across campus. The business plan competition encourages students to explore their potential, search out new opportunities and use the skills and knowledge they have acquired to make a difference in the world…and win $10,000 scholarships.
