Sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the Service-Learning Scholar Award recognizes achievements in service-learning and community engagement projects led by UB students that directly relate to their academic work.
We are now accepting nominations for the 5th Annual Service-Learning Scholar Awards.
Students who have excelled in combining their academic coursework with community service and active reflection are encouraged to apply. Up to five students will receive recognition and $250 at the annual student life and leadership awards on May 3, 2012.
The Corporation for National and Community Service defines service-learning as “a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities.” Service-learning can be curricular (existing within the structure of a credit-bearing course) or co-curricular (existing outside of the structure of a credit-bearing course while applying academic knowledge).

The University of Baltimore celebrates students who apply their knowledge, skills and talents while serving their community. Awards are open to UB graduate and undergraduate students from every UB school/college. Awards are determined by: students' connection of campus and community during the 2011 calendar year; how the service-learning work has enriched their academic experience while positively impacting the community; and the quality of the written responses.
Students may self-nominate or be nominated by peers, faculty or staff. If you would like to nominate a student, please contact the student and have them fill out the online application using the link below. Students that will self-nominate or have been nominated should use this link to apply:
