With U of C students on spring break this week, the Magazine knows undergrads are spending their vacation time not on holiday in Cancun but reading this blog and considering their futures. And we have two ways to help them do it.

First, a call to fourth-years, who may need some extra cash to help pay off student loans, post-graduation grocery bills, or a trip around the world. Enter the Magazine's Future Alumni Essay Contest. Win $500. Have your essay published in the June issue of the alumni magazine. For more information, click the top image at right.

Next, a call to first-, second-, and third-years, who have been told by CAPS that they should spend their summers doing fabulous internships in fabulous places. What's more fabulous than honing your reporting, writing, and editing skills right on campus? If journalism may be in your future, we'd like to see you in ours. Click the bottom image at right for application info.

The deadline for both of these opportunities is Friday, March 31. Happy spring break, and happy futures.
