Community Service Scholarships

Be rewarded for your active participation and contributions in the community with community service scholarships. Colleges and universities pride themselves on their abilities to mold students into well-rounded, compassionate, and community-minded individuals after a period of just four short years. While a liberal arts education is certainly a valuable thing and attending college can undoubtedly make a huge difference in your life and worldview, why wait till you’re on campus to get involved in the community? Colleges, scholarship providers, and the world at large can appreciate a student who takes an interest in making a difference in the world.

Benefits of Community Service

Participating in community service activities as a high school student can be laregely beneficial, and not just when it comes to acing your college interview. Students who get involved can expect all sorts of rewards to come of their extracurricular work, including:

  • Work and Life Experience

    Students who participate in community service activities related to their future career goals can jump the competition and college-planning process by gaining real-world experience. Volunteering can also improve students’ skill sets and help prepare them for work experiences totally unrelated to their community service work.
  • Connections

    The people you meet while volunteering will grow your social and professional circle. They can write letters of recommendation for your college and scholarship applications, serve as references when job-searching, and potentially help you find a job opportunity. At the very least, working with others gives you a chance to build networking skills, which will be necessary later in your professional life.
  • A Broader Worldview

    You meet a variety of people and learn a multitude of new things while doing community service. Exposure to new people and different environments can help shape the direction of your life and the way you view the world around you. Community service instills a sense of purpose and direction as well.

Opportunities for Community Service Scholarships

Volunteering in your community can lead to community service scholarships. When it comes to scholarship opportunities, community service helps to distinguish you from the competition by showing your commitment to making the world a better place. Scholarship providers, being philanthropists themselves, can appreciate students who show an early interest in helping those around them. Winning scholarships, whether or not they are specifically labeled as community service scholarships, can be much easier with a bit of community service experience listed on your application or worked into your scholarship essay.

Whatever the requirements, scholarship awards for community-minded students abound, and all you need to do to start funding your education is find and apply for scholarships like these. Luckily for you, Scholarships.com makes the process simple. Conduct a free college scholarship search, and make sure to note your penchant for volunteering in your profile.
