Civic Scholars

The Civic Scholars program recognizes Washington University (WashU) undergraduate students who exemplify future potential for civic leadership. Rising juniors are selected for the program based on their commitment to community service and civic engagement. Through this four-semester program, cohorts receive intensive leadership training and mentorship to prepare them for a life dedicated to public service, and a scholarship of US$5,000 to support a substantial civic project or internship. The program begins with a cohort retreat and students will complete a course each semester in the program. Students will apply their US$5,000 scholarship toward a civic project during the summer between junior and senior year.

Meet St. Louis

Through a wide variety of half-day, small group experiences, first-year students can discover, engage, and reflect on community development efforts and service opportunities in St. Louis. Topics include conversations about the politics of public education, the local sustainable food movement, societal systems that reinforce hunger and homelessness, and public health in the St. Louis region. Led by faculty, staff, and student group leaders who have a specific and deep connection with a variety of local issues and neighborhoods, these half-days are the beginning of a meaningful conversation for new WashU students about what it means to be an engaged member of the St. Louis community.
