The program brings together an interdisciplinary group of promising University of Chicago graduate students who have a track record of work around an issue and empowers them with the education, skills, relationships, and perspectives they need to tackle their communities’ most pressing challenges as they take their work to the next level. During this one-year program, University of Chicago Obama Foundation Scholars will develop a distinctly interdisciplinary approach to advancing social change and will leave the University prepared to address even the most complex social challenges through impactful careers in a wide range of settings. Each participating Scholar will receive $10,000 of financial support in the form of a stipend to defray tuition costs and living expenses in their final year.
