Creative Opportunities Unlimited works closely with Odyssey of the Mind to stimulate bright, creative minds.
The 2014 COU World Finals Housing Grant application is now available. Creative Opportunities Unlimited (COU) Team World Final grants are designed to assist teams in experiencing the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals. A COU grant is intended to supplement efforts of teams to raise sufficient funds to attend World Finals. Funds are extremely limited, and only a small portion of applicants are awarded grants each year.
COU grants provide World Finals room and board packages purchased through Creative Competitions, Inc. Only teams electing to stay in official campus housing are eligible. Successful teams will be awarded a variable number of packages, depending on need. These awards carry no cash equivalent.
Teams wishing to apply for a COU housing grant must submit their application within two weeks of the qualifying tournament.
The 2014 COU World Finals Housing Grants are completed and the winners have been notified. Sadly, while we received over 1,000 requests for housing grants, we were only able to fund a few.
Creative Opportunities Unlimited (COU) is an independent non-profit, tax-exempt corporation that rewards students who have demonstrated creative problem-solving skills, good sportsmanship, perseverance, and teamwork. Part of our mission is to seek sponsors to help us achieve our goals; another part is to seek applicants who meet this criteria. We believe that many participants in the
Odyssey of the Mind program demonstrate these skills. Therefore, we invite participants to apply for scholarship opportunities that may be available to them.
