Community Scholars Program
The Community Scholars Program provides opportunities for Guilford College students to earn Federal Work-Study (FWS) awards by working with one of our community partners in Greensboro.
The main purpose of the Community Scholars program is to encourage students receiving Federal Work-Study to participate in community service activities that will benefit the Greensboro community and engender in our students a sense of social responsibility and commitment to the community.
The Community Service Work-Study Program focuses on engaging students more fully in service learning through consistent outreach activities, stimulating service experiences, meaningful orientation and reflection, and connections between service and coursework. Students employed at the Bonner Center’s Community Partner organizations learn more about their community, impact the lives of local residents, and earn part of their financial aid award.
The Community Scholars Work-Study Program is currently affiliated with the Bonner Center’s Community partners in the City of Greensboro and the greater Guilford County community. Students working in these agencies tutor academically at-risk youth, complete clerical tasks, plan arts projects, participate in environmental restoration programs, contribute creative ideas, and more.
