Bonner Leader Program

Bonner Leaders are part of a diverse community of passionate students ready to engage in the world through service.

The Bonner Leader Program is a selective four-year civic leadership development program that provides annual scholarships to students in exchange for a weekly commitment to meaningful service with a local community organization. As a Bonner Leader, you’ll  delve into community and social justice topics to better understand the world around you - and your role in it. You'll also be part of a national network that transforms students, communities and campuses through service. The College is one of only 51 colleges and universities nationwide to offer this prestigious program.

Become a Changemaker

Our Bonner Leaders combine education, service and reflection to become changemakers. How? By developing meaningful service partnerships with local non-profits throughout the school year, engaging in hands-on experiences that challenge them to look at old problems in new ways, and exploring what it means to be an active member of the community.

Bonner Leader applications for incoming 2024-2025 freshmen will open soon. Contact us for more information or to be notified about the application timeline and process.
