Community Service Scholarship

What is the Community Service Scholarship?
The Community Service Scholarship is an $80,000 scholarship ($20,000 per year) for domestic applicants and is awarded to students based on past and current participation in community service. Our goal is to award this scholarship to students with a passion for service work who will continue to make a positive impact on the St. Lawrence and local communities. 

As an institution, we have a strong commitment to maintaining a productive relationship with the surrounding community and continually encourage students to take an active role in fostering this connection. Over 80% of St. Lawrence students participate in community service. They are prepared for the responsibility of serving their community, country and world after graduation.

Who is named a Community Service Scholar?
Any U.S. citizen who is applying as a first-year or transfer student is eligible.

We expect Community Service Scholars to be at the forefront of service at St. Lawrence; students who have shown initiative and leadership in their community service work. Community Service Scholars include students who have created new service projects in their schools and hometowns, students who have motivated their peers to be involved in worthwhile projects, and students who have made community service a top priority.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents interested in this scholarship must submit their Common Application to St. Lawrence by January 11 or at the same time as their Common Application if applying Early Decision. Transfer students and students applying Early Decision must submit scholarship material with their completed application.
