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.

Scholarship Opportunity from INWHE (Illinois Network for Women in Higher Education)

This year the Illinois Network for Women in Higher Education (INWHE) has established exciting development opportunities by creating scholarships for students at member institutions to attend INWHE’s Annual Conference. These scholarships were established to honor the work of President Gena Proulx, Ph.D., past president of Joliet Junior College and a tremendous supporter of INWHE, who lost her three-year battle with fallopian tube cancer last August.

INWHE is dedicating two free registrations for students at each member institution. Additionally, INWHE is providing travel reimbursements up to a total of $150 per member school. Receipts are to be sent to INWHE for reimbursement following the April Annual Conference. We are asking that each college or university select two students who would most benefit from attending this conference.

We are particularly proud to offer these scholarships this year as the conference keynote speaker is Alexandra Levit who will lead an interactive discussion on communicating across generations. She has ten years of experience providing integrated marketing communications solutions for Fortune 500 companies and educational institutions. For more information on Ms. Levit, please visit her web site at

Please consider taking advantage of this special opportunity INWHE is offering for the 2012 Annual Conference, “Embracing Change as Opportunity.” This promises to be a learning opportunity for women who have been in the workplace for decades as well as for women who are about to enter the workplace and for women at every stage in their career.

Registration deadline:

Please complete the Registration Form and submit via e-mail to or via fax at 847.635.1997 by April 15, 2012.
