Have you heard? The CGI Award and the Vimy Global Team Award have undergone some big changes for the 2018-19 academic year, and both award applications are now live!

To better meet students’ needs we’ve changed the application deadlines for both awards.

CGI Award applications will now be accepted on a rolling basis, throughout the year, so that the funding can be applied to global opportunities whenever they occur. Whether it’s a winter break opportunity, an alternative spring break, a late summer experience or any other time of the year that better fits student schedules, the award timeline should no longer prevent students from receiving the funding needed to pursue their a global experience.

The Vimy Global Team Award application will now be due November 30, 2018. The Vimy previously had a spring deadline, but this timing made it challenging to give the awarded team enough time for sufficient pre-trip planning and support. This earlier deadline will allow for more post-award support and application development and revisions during the review process.

Please visit the funding pages for each of these awards for more information on award timelines and details and to reach out to the program manager with questions or to schedule a appointment to discuss your proposal.
