At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Enriching Lives through Friendship & Guidance

The African and Caribbean Students’ Association (ACSA) at the College warmly invites all undergraduate and graduate students to participate in a new ACSA initiative – The African and Caribbean Scholars’ Program (ACS).

The aim of ACS is to create and maintain a network of African and Caribbean Students at the University of Chicago through a mentorship program. It is a platform for students in higher learning to share their experiences with undergraduates, and to give career guidance and counsel in their field of expertise.

We believe that by increasing dialogue within ourselves we will be able to address issues that affect us directly, such as questions on whether to return directly to our home-countries upon graduation.

ACS will host a quarterly meet-and-greet event to welcome new Africans and Caribbeans, and offer a chance for students to get to know each other.

If interested, please follow his Google Spreadsheets link and fill in your information and contact details:
