This month, the National Office kicked off the application periods for two amazing programs: Chapter Visits and the Venture Fund!
Applications for both programs opened early in August during the Sixth Annual Summer Institute. Since then, students have been encouraged to plan and start on their applications, both of which are due in September. The deadline for the Chapter Visit application will be the first to come up on Monday, September 9. The deadline for the Venture Fund application will follow two weeks later on Monday, September 23.
The National Office cannot wait to see the Chapters’ applications for the programs — both of which are designed to bolster Chapters’ fulfillment of their annual leadership, profit, and project impact goals.
Learn more about the programs and the details of their application processes below:
Chapter Visits are an opportunity for Chapters to have some one-on-one time on their campuses with the National Office to work on achieving Chapter goals. Chapters will submit an application to NINO with concrete examples on how a visit would help them to further their goals and grow as a Chapter. Applicants will also need to create a tentative schedule of events and logistics for the visit. The Chapter Visits are designed to be 3-5 days of intensive workshops and trainings to give Chapters a vigorous push forward tailored to their specific needs and goals!
- Deadline: September 9, at 11:59 pm.

The Venture Fund is a competition in which Chapters put forth their strongest business plans for enterprises designed to fund their international partners. Students have the opportunity to lay out their plans for the launch of a new Venture or for the scaling of a current Venture. Not only do students get to work on a written business plan and financial spread sheet in the first round, but in the second round they also have the opportunity to pitch their plans to a panel of potential investors. All applicants are coached through this process by the National Office’s Chapter Support Team — and the winners are given seed capital to put their plans in place this fall!
- Deadline: September 23, at 11:59 pm.
