Regional Meetups are multi-day events designed and hosted by Fellows at their schools. They’re like family reunions, plus lots of stretching and learning! These events allow everyone to learn something new, experience a different place/culture, make new friends, and strengthen existing relationships. Since 2014, Fellows have hosted 18 UIF Regional Meetups in the U.S., the Netherlands, India, and Uruguay.
2020 Regional Meetup Call for Proposals
We ask Fellows to submit a proposal to hold an official UIF Regional Meetup at their schools.
- There are two deadlines: November 1, 2019 for events proposed January-June 2020, and February 1, 2020 for events proposed July-December 2020.
- The UIF team will select four schools to host official Regional Meetups in 2020.
- Selected schools will receive planning support from the UIF team and partial event funding.
In addition to all of this good stuff for event hosts, the UIF team will also provide a travel stipend for any Fellows who drive a car with other attendees to the Meetup.
