Service Learning Scholarships

Helping provide for you–while you provide for your community.

For students who want to engage in community service activities, Emory & Henry is able to provide scholarships to help with tuition. These scholarships not only help students with tuition expenses while they perform service work, but they help underscore the College’s belief in service-learning as a vital component of the liberal arts.

The Bonner Program

Established in 1991 by the Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation, Inc., of Princeton, New Jersey, the Bonner Scholars Program is the premier service scholarship program at Emory & Henry College. The Bonner Program offers 20 new scholarships annually in return for eight hours of direct community service and two hours of reflection and participation in enrichment events per week. 

The Civic Leader Scholars Program 

The Civic Leader Scholars Program at Emory & Henry College is a renewable, four-year scholarship for undergraduate students with a strong interest in civic engagement. Civic Leader Scholars participate in on-going civic engagement projects, community-building, reflections, trainings, and leadership development.

The Appalachian Center Associates Program

The Appalachian Center Associates Program, in partnership with Highlands Education Literacy Program, is an extension of the College’s Community-based Federal Work Study Program.
