The Carter-Kellogg Scholarship
The "Carter-Kellogg Scholarship presented by Stetson University" offers recognition to those students who have completed or implemented noteworthy service-learning projects. Students who submit winning projects, as judged by a panel of faculty and staff at Stetson University, receive $500 as a scholarship for their hard work and contributions to the community. All submitted projects are published online at servicebook.org, to serve as a resource for future students, faculty, and community partners. Online applications for the scholarship are available at servicebook.org.
Applications must meet the following general criteria:
- The service-learning project must have had a significant impact on the life of the student and his or her community.
- A partnership must exist between the student, a participating academic institution, and a community partner.
- A connection must be established between academic preparation and the service component of the project.
Student's essay should include the following elements:
- Identification of community needs that led to the project being put into motion
- Academic preparation made by student before the implementation of the project
- A general report on the activities undertaken by the project
- Strong reflective component that examines the impact of the project on the community and student
Full-time college students who have completed or implemented service-learning projects are eligible to compete for one of thirty-two $500 scholarships. As previously mentioned, such students must also have partnered with a community organization and had a faculty member that loosely oversaw the project.
