How to Apply

The Bonner Community Scholars Program seeks motivated, dedicated students who have a passion for community service and social justice. Our application has closed for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Each February, we open our application to interested first-year students. Applicants can write short essays, submit a portfolio, or create a video response to apply for the program. Successful applicants who apply before the mid-March deadline are then invited to interview with a panel of Bonner students and staff, and offers are made by May 1.

For upper-class students, transfer students, and first-year students who may have missed the priority deadline in mid-March, we also keep a rolling application open through mid-June of each year. These applications are reviewed on a rolling basis until our incoming class is filled, and we do not guarantee these candidates a response prior to May 1.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us at
