Funded by a generous gift to York College, the Eisenhart Community Scholars program awards up to five $5,000 scholarships to students who:
- Want to work with a team of other students and faculty who are committed to benefitting the community;
- Aim to lead by serving;
- Have both experience with community engagement and a desire to further that work;
- Are ready to engage with both the College and community toward creating significant and sustainable change to the betterment of the York community.
The Eisenhart Community Engagement Scholars Program educates, prepares, and inspires you to become agents of change in your communities and society. You'll be given mentored opportunities to study and develop genuine partnerships with local community agencies over the course of their time in the program.
Supporting the College’s commitment to community engagement and outreach, and to fostering connections among the College, its students and faculty, and our community, the program encourages students to meet their educational goals while making a difference in the greater York community.
The program will nurture students’ skills in management, community organizing, leadership, networking, fundraising, and other skills that can apply to whatever profession they choose.
