Community Service Scholarship Pays Out $2,000 in Tuition Assistance
Published on April 3, 2014 by arothstein
A Broadview University-Online student recently applied for and received the community service scholarship that is available to two students each quarter. Healthcare management student Jennifer Sanders says while she just began her volunteer efforts, she is looking forward to finding other opportunities within her community to give back.
So what type of volunteer work did Jennifer do to earn the scholarship? Let’s run down the list.
The first volunteer activity Ms. Sanders participated in was helping out at her daughter’s school. Jennifer says she would “work in her daughter’s classroom, helping out the teacher.” Sanders also helped out during the lunch period “helping the students, while the teachers received a teacher appreciation lunch.”
And while that activity alone would have been enough to earn Jennifer the community service scholarship, Jennifer didn’t stop there.
Jennifer also took on the responsibility of helping out with the nationally recognized Girl Scouts of America program. Jennifer and her scouts paid several visits to local nursing homes to help support the residents and staff there.
From creating festive holiday cards for the residents, to helping serve them lunch, and even sing some holiday carols, Jennifer says the volunteer work has rewarded her as a person and a mother in inexplicable ways.
The community service scholarship application period has once again opened up to student applicants. If you’d like to apply, please send an email to Serena at firstname.lastname@example.org for eligibility requirements and an application. The deadline to apply for scholarship is Friday, May 30th 2014.
