Dear Nazareth Students,

This fall semester, Nazareth students have the opportunity to submit project applications (called a Commitment to Action) to the Clinton Global Initiative University. If the project is selected, our students will travel to the CGI U Spring Training (hosted by President Bill Clinton and Chelsea Clinton), further develop the project, then put the plan into action. Accepted students will join a thousand college students and leaders from around the world at the CGI U training at the University of Miami from March 6-8, 2015. Travel scholarships are available. Funding for projects may also be available. The application deadline is December 1, 2014.

Students can propose projects from five focus areas; Education, Environment and Climate Change, Peace and Human Rights, Poverty Alleviation, and Public Health. More information about CGI U is available at
