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.

The University of Chicago Black Alumni Gold Phoenix Award

The University of Chicago Association of Black Alumni (UCABA) was organized in 2006 as a support organization for Black Alumni of the University of Chicago. We strive to build professional ties with former classmates and build stronger ties with the University community at large. We seek to mentor and support current and prospective students in pursuit of their respective degrees.

As such, our aim is to honor and recognize outstanding graduating students of African descent each year. For this award year, the UCABA Board is seeking students who have displayed outstanding potential for future success, positive personal character, and exceptional contributions and involvement in the student, academic, Chicago, or world community. The winners will be announced at the OMSA 5th Year Anniversary of 5710 S. Woodlawn Celebration on Saturday, June 8, 2013 and honored at the Black Alumni Brunch on Sunday, June 9, 2013.

Application Information

A review committee composed of members of the UCABA Board and staff members of the University will review applications and select the recipients. To be considered for the award, each student must submit a cover letter and two letters of support: one of which must be from a University faculty member, staff member, or alumnus of the University, and one from a peer. Documents must be submitted electronically (in PDF format) to no later than 5pm on Friday, May 17, 2013.
