Student Leadership Recognition and Access (SLRA) Program

Are you a student involved in cool things on campus? Student Government wants to help you keep doing those cool things! The Student Leadership Recognition and Access Program aims to grant stipends to students whose work in RSOs prevents them from taking on a job and gaining additional income during this time period. The goal is to encourage and support the impactful work that students are already doing at UChicago, as well as acknowledge these students for their contributions. Grants range from $300 to $600. Student Government does not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, citizenship, religious affiliation, or political affiliation. All undergraduate applications for the SLRA Program will be reviewed anonymously by members of The Committee for Registered Student Organizations (CORSO)

The Student Leadership Recognition and Access Program (SLRA) seeks to enable dedicated undergraduate and graduate leaders on campus to keep doing, and grow the amount of impactful work they do on campus. Any student is encouraged to apply, but SLRA was particularly designed with the students in mind who struggle to balance volunteer work with maintaining a part-time job. We hope these awards will keep encouraging the incredible work students are already doing at UChicago through their organizations, as well as recognize these students for their contributions. The complete SLRA policy is available here.

  • 26 undergraduate students will be selected to receive $250.
  • 10 graduate students will be selected to receive $350.

Applications for the 2015-2016 academic year were due May 4, 2016. The SLRA program will see a significantly expanded budget for the 2016-2017 academic year, and more information about the program as it continues to grow will be available soon.
