FSU Service Scholar Program

The Service Scholar Program is a four-year, comprehensive, co-curricular program. Service Scholars will complete a minimum of 75 service hours per semester (45 hours for first-semester first-year students), participate in individual and group service projects, attend regular meetings, engage in coursework tailored to each year in the program, and promote community participation among their peers. The program includes an annual $3,000 scholarship, which is automatically renewed each year, provided requirements are met.

Service Scholars will be affiliated with the Center for Leadership & Social Change, and will participate in activities and events in the center. It is expected that Service Scholars will develop as effective leaders and exemplary citizens.

  • It is a four-year program (as a maximum of eight semesters of scholarship funds are available).
  • Service Scholars participate in 75 hours of community service each semester (45 hours for the first semester of one’s first year).
  • Service Scholars must maintain a 2.75 cumulative GPA.
  • Service Scholars attend monthly meetings called Evenings to engage in thoughtful conversation around civic engagement topics.
  • Service Scholars enroll in a service-focused course each semester to help connect out-of-class experiences to in-class learning and development.
  • First-year students are assigned a peer mentor.
  • The Service Scholar Program is a second family — a supportive community of service-minded student leaders.

 

FSU is currently accepting Service Scholar applications for the 2018-2019 freshman class.  The application can be accessed on our website, at   http://www.thecenter.fsu.edu/recognition/service-scholarsThe deadline to apply is January 25th, 2018.
