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.

Apply for the NYC Civic Corps 2011-12
NYC Service is currently accepting applications for the 2011-2012 class of the NYC Civic Corps.
The NYC Civic Corps, run by NYC Service, unites a diverse group of professionals in a year-long term of service to assist nonprofit organizations and City agencies in increasing their organizational capacity to engage volunteers and building sustainable service initiatives. NYC Service dispatches teams of NYC Civic Corps members to host sites for a ten-month term of service, where they drive volunteer activity to New York City’s most pressing needs in economic opportunity, environment and clean energy, education, and health.
To join the NYC Civic Corps, individuals must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents, hold a Bachelor’s Degree by August 2011, and be willing to commit to a full-time position (40 hours per week) beginning late August 2011 and ending June 30, 2012. In return for their service, corps members receive a monthly living stipend of $1,270 (pre-tax), basic health benefits, a $5,350 Segal AmeriCorps Educational Award, and monthly professional development and support from NYC Service.
A link to the application can be found here, and a downloadable recruitment flyer is available here. The deadline for applications is July 8, 2011.
