Michigan Service Scholars
Michigan Service Scholars complete 300 hours of community service during one calendar year and are awarded a $1,175 scholarship, otherwise known as an AmeriCorps Educational Award, to be used for any educational purpose. Community service hours can be completed during the academic year and/or over class breaks. To complete 300 hours during a regular academic year, students would need to average 9.5-10 hours of community service per week.
Applications are now being accepted for the Winter semester. Applications are due by Jan. 25th at 4:30 p.m. and those selected will begin their service on Feb. 1st and will have to finish by Jan. 31st, 2014. To complete an application, please visit: http://svsu.orgsync.com/Forms.
