Federal Work Study Community Service
Through the Federal Work-Study Program, students have the opportunity to integrate career exploration and educational experiences with meaningful employment. The CSCEL collaborates with community organizations and other campus units to build long-term partnerships between the university and its surrounding neighborhoods. Students awarded financial assistance through Federal Work Study may work in local non-profit agencies, including schools to earn their financial award in the community.
The following goals have been set forth by the Bonner Foundation: To identify worthy and qualified students who are in need of financial assistance; To enable students to serve others; To provide students with academic support and enrichment activities; To encourage students to complete their undergraduate education and earn their degree.
More than simply a form of financial aid, Bonner Scholars Program provides deserving students the opportunity to continue their community service interests throughout their college years.
