Hello socially minded UChicago students!

The Neighborhood Schools Program (NSP) and Career Advancement’s UCIEP program is pleased to let you know they have just opened applications for the Milgrom Education Impact Fellowship, a tutoring program with a community organization.

This paid fellowship runs during the Winter/Spring 2019 quarters and is designed to connect you with students in our community by serving as tutors and mentors in various capacities. Last year, over 50 students answered this call to serve, and together, we worked with over 1,400 students and 20+ local schools and community centers. We also met as workshop participants to learn from community leaders and reflect on how the experience was shaping our notions of self, other, and our future.

Brief info sessions will be held on November 26th (https://uchicago.joinhandshake.com/events/228687) and November 29th (https://uchicago.joinhandshake.com/events/228686), and Fellows will be selected prior to final exams.
