Bonner Scholars Program

The Bonner Scholars Program provides a service-learning scholarship for students who have high financial need and a commitment to service. The program is designed to heighten the overall education a Scholar receives by engaging students in ongoing service work and helping them develop the tools and the knowledge necessary to make their experience meaningful and lasting.

Expectations:

Bonner Scholars are expected to:

  • Perform 280 hours of service each academic year
    (10 hours a week)
  • Maintain a GPA of 2.5
  • Participate in a student developmental model that challenges and supports each Scholar to develop her skills, knowledge, commitments and responsibilities
  • Attend regular group reflection, enrichment, skill and leadership development activities
  • Complete at least one full time service oriented internship

This is a four year scholarship that requires a recommitment every year after successful completion of program requirements.

Prospective first-year students may apply for this program upon admission to the College. If a position becomes available, a campus-wide announcement will be made for a replacement prior to the completion of the semester.
