Learning for Students Who Serve

Drew University actively supports students who show extraordinary commitment to community service by offering Civic Engagement Scholarships of $10,000 ($2,500/year).

Become a Drew Civic Scholar and you will not only receive a monetary award, but you will also join an exciting four-year Civic Engagement Program that will increase your civic and leadership skills, while giving you significant real-world experience. Drew Civic Scholars complete 100 hours or more of service annually and participate in special classes, workshops, and off-campus service projects. Drew’s Civic Scholars represent a wide range of academic majors and career interests. Read all about the program details in the Civic Scholars Handbook 2017-18.
