Community Service Scholars

Scholarship information

Program description

The Community Service Scholarship (CSS) program is a service-based scholarship designed to expose IUPUI scholars to social issues in the Indianapolis community and to show how community agencies are addressing those social issues. CSS scholars are matched with a community agency and serve four hours each week at the assigned community agency. While there, the scholar participates in programs and activities that further the mission of the agency while addressing the social issue. CSS scholars also enroll in a service learning course during the fall semester that allows them to reflect and to discuss their individual service experiences in the context of academic research and findings about service. During the spring semester, CSS scholars collaborate to coordinate César Chávez Day of Service.
