LinC Bonner Scholar

The LinC Bonner Scholar Program at Washburn University is a national service scholarship program supported by the Bonner Foundation   in Princeton, NJ.  Washburn University recognizes the dedication and accomplishments of the students in this program by conferring the university honor of LinC Bonner Scholar upon graduation after successful completion of at least three full years with the program.

What Will I Do as a Bonner?

  • Engage in service that develops leadership, civic and advocacy skills while working for social change in the community 
  • Participate in regular developmental and issue-based trainings and reflection activities
  • Engage in team-building and group service activities with other Bonners
  • Attend national gatherings sponsored by the Bonner Foundation and service exchanges with other Bonner schools
  • Develop skills to become a leader within the program (i.e. by the third year, all Bonners are expected to take on one or more leadership roles--for example, issue-based team leader, alternative break coordinator, first-year student mentor/reflection leader, etc.)

What Will I Get Out of Being a Bonner?

  • Experience and knowledge about the community and the world in which we live that connect back to your academic studies
  • Real-world grass-roots leadership, advocacy and other skills that will translate into other arenas
  • A deeper understanding of the six common commitments of service: social justice, civic engagement, community building, diversity, international perspective and spiritual/personal growth
  • Connections and friendships with other members of the Washburn and Bonner communities who are committed to the same issues
