Service Scholars Program

About the Service Scholars Program

The Service Scholars Program embodies the spirit of community and caring that is the hallmark of the Fisher experience.

Each year, 24 scholarships are awarded to high school seniors who exhibit outstanding community service through activities in their schools, places of worship, and community agencies.

Mission Statement

The Service Scholarship program offers students an opportunity for service in the context of service learning. We partner with individuals with a clear need and in communities where resources to provide services are scarce. The program encourages person-to-person interaction with the goal of emphasizing with and getting to know the poor and needy, appreciating who they are and what they need and do, and serving their needs within our ability. Service learning is supported in the classroom through ongoing, connected, challenging and contextual reflection.

At the end of the program our aim is that students will have a developed a pattern of service and giving not only of time but of self.
