A few things we have done

Networking Events

In partnership with Mind+Hand, we were able to put together a fun and interactive event, Link-n-Build. We brought together professionals and students to learn about the full power of LinkedIn and to begin their networking experience. 

Scholarship Seminars

We were able to collaborate with Chicago Scholars and Questbridge to provide a scholarship seminar to High School students. Participants had overviews of the application process and were able to talk to previous recipients and learn more about these opportunities in depth.

Internship Search Workshop

Hosted INROADS to be able to give an overview of their programs, provide tips on resume writing, and answer questions about applying for their internship opportunities!

Hear what some members have to say

Daniela Echiveste

Student @ Michigan State University

Knowing there’s a whole support system of students who look like me, have experiences like me, and full of ambition means the world to me! I also love seeing a platform that helps each other and applauds for each others’ successes.

Luis Cabrales

Student @ University of Illinois at Chicago

Chicago Latinx Scholars has given me access to a community of other Latinx students across Chicago. I have been able to share opportunities with other people who I know and help them benefit from this page. 

Yuridia Luciana Gutierrez-Garcia

Student @ Kalamazoo College

Chicago Latinx Scholars has allowed me to see other Latinx folks rise accross my city. This is so important as I feel as thought sometimes we’re aren’t visible
