Action Scholars

Community, Innovation, and Global Impact

Recognizing the power of the experiential learning built into the Civic Scholars program, Drew University has expanded into the Drew Action Scholars program, including more students and embracing more—and larger—real-world problems and solutions.

Drew Action Scholars is a two-year program with a four-year scholarship, guided by a distinctive, results- and action-oriented approach to real-world problem-solving. Accepted students join a cohort of peers committed to communityinnovation and global impact in a connected world. All first-year Action Scholars are supported by a junior or senior peer mentor. Complete the two year program and receive a four year scholarship of $10,000 ($2,500/year).
