Civic Scholars Join Forces with Action Scholars in Fall, 2020

Drew Civic Scholars believe in connecting to community, giving back, and using their education to help make our world a better place. If you share these commitments, we encourage you to join a team of like-minded students by joining the Drew Action Scholar program. This new program expands on the Civic Scholars’ engagement with the community to include innovation and global focus areas. Now even more Drew students can join together to solve the urgent challenges of our time!

Are community service and civic engagement an important part of your identity? Do you want to continue your volunteerism in college and gain valuable life skills and experiences? Are you eager to impact your community locally, nationally, or globally? If yes, then apply to become a Drew Action Scholar!

Civic Scholars in Action

Each year, all Civic Scholars contribute at least 100 hours of community service or experiential learning activities. (Many complete much more!) Of those hours, 50 must be completed while Drew is in session to model civic engagement and to include other Drew community members.  Community engagement or experiential learning hours take many forms: on and off campus events, internships and community-based learning classes, community-based research or advocacy projects, leading or attending a student club service event, study abroad opportunities, and participating in alternative break trips. The Civic Engagement staff can help to locate opportunities and transportation.
