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.

Summer Links Internship
Looking for a meaningful summer job? Want to learn more about Chicago?

Students receive $4,000 for their program participation from June 24, 2013 to August 30, 2013.

Wednesday evenings and all day on Fridays, students participate in trainings held in different communities that focus on issues such as housing, health care, and education. These trainings include presentations by guest speakers, visits to organizations, and discussions that allows students to gain an understanding of the complexity and connection of social justice/equity issues in Chicago.
