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 Contest) La Casa | Student Housing and Resource Center - in Pilsen!

La Casa | Live.Learn.Thrive.
Win one year FREE student housing!

Contest Period: March 6 - May 31, 2012

La Casa student housing with resource center, a community of students from various universities living and learning together.

For your chance to win one academic year rent free at La Casa, create a video – no more than 4 minutes in length – that answers the following question: “Why do you want to live at La Casa?”  Then tell your friends, tell everyone you know, to view your video, because the video with the most views wins the popular vote and goes to committee for final selection.  Only the ten most viewed videos will go to committee.

About the Contest

No need to hire a top Hollywood producer or buy/rent expensive camera equipment, use your phone, your friend’s phone, web-cam, digital camera with video recording capabilities, anything that records a digital video. Make sure your video is viewable and that we can hear it. That’s it! Your video will not be judged for production quality, just make sure we can see and hear you.
Here are some ideas of what you can create:

•       A slideshow with your story
•       A Telenovela or soap opera
•       Dramatization
•       A play
•       A documentary, starring YOU!

All video responses must be uploaded between March 6th and May 31, 2012 at<>.
