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.

Human Rights Minor and Internship Program Informational Session
The Human Rights Program offers summer support ($5000) for students who want to work on human rights issues in Chicago and all over the world; applications are due November 2, 2012 for summer 2013 – the program is open to students from all departments and divisions of the University. College students are also invited to minor in Human Rights.
The benefits and requirements of both programs will be discussed at an informal session to be held on Monday, October 22, 2011 from 12:30 - 1:20 pm in the Social Science Tea Room, Room 201. It will feature a presentation and Q&A with Susan Gzesh (Executive Director, Human Rights Program and Senior Lecturer in the College) and Jack Lesniewski (Human Rights Internship Coordinator).
