Nominations are being accepted for The Principal Community Scholars Program, which is a collaboration between Principal and Campus Compact that supports the leadership development of undergraduate students seeking a business or business-related degree. Students are selected through a competitive process to receive a $1,000 scholarship, participate in a civic leadership learning community, and complete a community-based experiential learning project. The curriculum and project help students develop critical skills for their careers.
Students can be nominated by any faculty or staff member willing to serve as their advisor. The Drake Office of Community Engaged Learning will oversee the nomination process for Drake. Please submit nominations of students to Amanda Martin at email@example.com no later than Sept. 25. Scholars must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher, be US citizens or permanent residents, have a major or area of concentration in a business or related field, and be available to attend a virtual retreat on Nov. 10 from 12-2pm.
Faculty or staff wishing to nominate a student: please submit a paragraph describing why you are nominating this student, how this program would benefit them, and what the student’s idea for a community project may be. Students wishing to be nominated should identify a faculty or staff member willing to nominate them and contact them to submit the nomination.
