Please join us on Zoom for an Information Session about the CGI U program and how to apply. Click the link below to register. Registered participants will receive a separate email with the Zoom meeting link.
Meeting Dates: Thursday, November 19, 2020 from 4:30–5:30 pm and Friday, December 4, 2020 from 1:00–2:00 pm
The CGI U network includes undergraduate and graduate students who are committed to actionable change - you would join a growing, global community of young leaders. Through its Commitment to Action model, CGI U challenges you to develop, test, and implement your ideas at local, regional or global scales.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, in good standing at CSUN and enrolled for both Spring 2021 and Fall 2021 semesters. Students who graduate in Spring 2021 are not eligible.
Mentoring: all CGI U students are assigned a mentor who will help guide you as you work to implement your CTA. Mentors have academic or professional expertise in your area.
Training: All accepted CGI U students are expected to be available for the entirety of the scheduled dates of the four online modules. Accepted students are required to attend and fully participate in all online module activities. The average time commitment is 3 hours per module.
Before you apply, please contact Dr. Jeanne Robertson, the CSUN faculty mentor for CGI U.
Please use the application preview to draft your responses before you begin the application. You will not be able to save your application and return to it at a later point, and your application will time out after 2 hours.
Each person may only submit one application. If you are applying as a group, the group leader must complete his or her application first and select 'Group' as the application type in Section I to provide details about group members. Groups can consist of up to CSUN students, each of whom should submit an application. It is possible that not all group members are invited to participate. We reserve the right to not invite all members of each group that applies. If your group has more than three students, we ask that you select the three students who can best represent your project to apply.
Application Deadline: January 15, 2021
Review and Selection: January 15 – mid-February
