Bonner Office of Community Service

Community Service Scholarship Programs

The Bonner Office of Community Service encourages a culture of service on our campus that strengthens our resolve to be accountable as leaders, with the desire to be stewards of positive social change.

Home to the Emma and Joe Adams, Corella and Bertram F. Bonner, and UPS Community scholarship programs, scholars engage a scaffolded education and reflection calendar based on the four-year Bonner Developmental Model. This model delivers a sequenced, progressive exploration of the skills, knowledge, values, and competencies needed for service work in local communities. Throughout their matriculation, their work builds the capacity of programs, organizations, and communities. Upon graduation, our scholars achieve the following learning outcomes: civic agency, civic identity, critical thinking and perspective-taking, communication skills, diversity and intercultural competence, empathy, integrative learning, leadership, place and issue knowledge, and social justice.
 
Before applying to our competitive, renewable scholarship programs, you must have received an acceptance letter from the Office of Admissions and Recruitment or are currently enrolled as well as completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have list Morehouse as a designee.
 
Applicants can anticipate providing a letter of recommendation, FAFSA Student Aid Report that lists Morehouse College as a designee, and service transcript from the Servant Leaders community service app (current students) or a detailed service chart with signatures (incoming students).
 
We have discovered that strong applications are submitted by men who understand our program by reading the content on our webpage, following @MorehouseServes on Twitter and Instagram, and engaging current community service scholars via social media or published contact information.
