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.

CURE Research Program at Northwestern
The CURE program, which has been in operation for over a decade, is appropriate for students majoring in the life sciences who want exposure to cancer research. The Physical Sciences-Oncology Center program, which was inaugurated in 2010, is geared toward minority undergraduates in the physical sciences, math, and computer sciences. Both programs give students hands-on research experience and a grounding in the basic tenets of tumor biology. For more information on both programs, please visit the website.
