It’s almost June and that means that the launch of the 2013 Graduate Studies Program at Singularity University is right around the corner. To provide tuition support to the 80 international students who’ve been selected to participate in this year’s program, a fundraising campaign has been set up at http://singularityu.org/give that will run over the next month. Participants limited by socioeconomic and/or geographic constraints were offered support to provide these brilliant innovators with an event-packed, 10-week education that is sure to be a life-changing experience.
Now the remaining funds need to be raised to ensure that this year’s program is the best yet.
Singularity University has put together a video to launch the campaign, which also profiles some of the success stories of previous GSP participants:
In its fifth year, the Graduate Studies Program continues to provide an indispensable catalyst to help students tackle the global challenges put forth by Singularity University: to positively change the lives of a billion people in the next 10 years. Hailing from 38 countries (86 percent are from outside the U.S. and Canada), this year’s diverse class of entrepreneurs are already making an impact in their own regions, and through the GSP, they’ll be enabled to take their passion to a global scale for good. You can learn more about participants in this year’s GSP here.
The fundraising campaign is set to run until the start of the GSP on June 15.
