Get Paid to Volunteer: Community Service Scholarship

community service scholarship

Volunteer Opportunity! Scott Miller, Community Service Scholarship winner, is looking for volunteers to help their team during this year's Canstruction Madison competition.

Really, there is a $2,000 scholarship opportunity from Globe University for those who volunteer. Just ask Scott Miller, alumni and returning student in the business management program. He was recently awarded the Community Service Scholarship at Globe University-Madison West.

Scott already received $500 during the Fall 2012 and Winter 2013 quarters with two more payments coming for the Spring and Early Fall 2013 quarters.

What did he do, you ask? He volunteered during Canstruction Madison 2012 and submitted a written summary of his community service activity to Bill Vache, director of financial aid.

It was that simple.

“I was excited and grateful to have won,” Scott shared. “School is expensive enough and having this scholarship opportunity to help with the cost of it is absolutely amazing and beneficial to everyone.  The Community Service Scholarship is a good way to give back to your community like we do with Canstruction and helping end hunger.”

So, I challenge you, Globe University-Madison West students. Have you volunteered lately for a cause that is close to your heart? Are you convinced that this scholarship is worth applying for?  If so, what are you waiting for?

If you have not volunteered at all and not sure where to start, check out http://www.volunteeryourtime.org/ which houses numerous volunteer opportunities in our area. Even better, you can search based on your skills, interests and schedule!   The application deadline for the Community Service Scholarship this quarter is Friday, May 24.
