The Bonner Scholar Program supports individuals who otherwise could not afford to attend college because of financial need. Bonner Scholar Programs meet the full documented need of U.S. citizens and may need the full documented need of non-U.S. citizens. In return for the financial aid support, the Bonner Scholars are expected to engage in 10 hours a week of community service during the school year (140 hours per semester) and 280 hours in the summer.
If you are interested in becoming a Bonner, you must apply directly one of our campus partners. Each campus has their own application and selection process. We suggest contacting both the Admissions Office and Bonner Program office at the school(s) you're interested in applying to for admission.
