Apply today for BSOS Winter/Spring 2019 Undergraduate Experience Funds!

These funds assist undergraduate BSOS majors engaged in experiential learning outside the classroom, such as unpaid internships, research, service learning, and professional or academic conferences. The funds are intended to help offset expenses related to such activities like travel/transportation expenses, professional attire, and other opportunity costs (for example: the need to give up a part-time paid job in order to take an unpaid internship).

If you are a BSOS student with financial need that is preventing you from taking advantage of an unpaid opportunity, I encourage you to apply for BSOS Undergraduate Experience Funds.

Applications for Winter 2019 and Spring 2019 experiences are due on November 19, 2018 by 9 a.m. Click here to apply. Before submitting your application, make sure to review the eligibility criteria.

State of Black Leadership Panel Monday!


The State of Black Leadership is a panelist-styled event where we encourage dialogue within a panel of renowned community leaders and local public figures by targeting issues related directly to the Black community and engaging through Q&A. Their theme of Young and the Restless, angles not towards the popular soap opera, but towards the exhausting oppression and strife young people face, especially people of color, towards microaggressions, systematic and institutional racism, police brutality, socioeconomic disparities, misogyny, homophobia, residential segregation, voter suppression, and other rationale of inequality and discrimination.

The Annual State of Black Leadership will be on November 12th, 2018 in the Nyumburu Multipurpose Room at the Nyumburu Cultural Center from 5:45pm to 8pm

For entry: Please donate $2 to the Annual Scholarship Fund or a winter clothing item.
