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.

The TIAA-CREF Ruth Simms Hamilton Research Fellowship was established to honor the memory and outstanding work of the late Dr. Ruth Simms Hamilton, the former Michigan State University professor and TIAA Trustee. Professor Hamilton served as a Trustee from 1989 to 2003 and during her 35-year career at Michigan State University, she was a highly regarded sociology professor and a faculty member of the African Studies Center, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies and the Center for Advanced Study of International Development. She was an early pioneer of research concerning the African Diaspora, the dispersion and settlement of African people once they left Africa. Fellowships are awarded to one or more graduate students enrolled in a social science program at an accredited U.S. college or university and studying the African Diaspora. The fellowships are awarded based on evaluation of submissions by an objective panel of judges.
