Volunteer & Community Service Scholarships
Giving your time to help those in need is noble. After all, everyone is busy with school, work, family and a social life. But, volunteers make it a priority to reach out and lend a hand - without asking for anything in return. And, though volunteers don't ask for anything in return, it doesn't mean they can't get anything in return. In fact, by giving back to your community, you have the chance to put money toward you college education as well! Since these individuals are so deserving, we thought it was important to showcase scholarship opportunities for students who are individuals that demonstrate the spirit of volunteering and community service. Whatever type of volunteer work your passion falls under, there are scholarship providers that recognize and provide awards for those that give their time and efforts to those in need. Check out the following scholarships for student volunteers and those involved in community service: Peat-Piper Scholarship
