New project fund focuses on immigration challenges

The Tsai Center for Innovative Thinking at Yale, La Casa Cultural and the Council on Latin American and Iberian Studies have established a new fund to promote innovative solutions to immigration issues in the United States.

The new Critical Innovation Fund will provide five awards of $1,500 each to teams that must include at least one Yale student. Projects can take a variety of forms, including events, educational campaign, technological innovations or storytelling projects. The organizations held an information session on Wednesday at La Casa to introduce the new fund.
