Through a generous gift from the Mimi and Peter Haas Fund, this program provides need-based scholarships making it possible for students to serve 10 to 15 hours a week in off-campus social action activities. Students who are selected will participate in a yearlong leadership development program through the Public Service Center.
Criteria for selection includes:
NOTE - Undocumented students who meet the financial aid requirements are eligible to apply
