The University of Chicago Obama Foundation Scholars Program is a joint initiative of the Obama Foundation and three University of Chicago professional schools; the Booth School of Business, the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice, and the Harris School of Public Policy.
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.
