Become a 2021–22 Civic Engagement Scholar

Applications are open for Case Western Reserve University’s Civic Engagement Scholars program. Now in its 12th year, the program, which is hosted by the Center for Civic Engagement & Learning (CCEL), promotes and recognizes meaningful student involvement in the community. 

Scholars complete at least 30 civic engagement hours in their choice of direct service, advocacy, philanthropy, political involvement or other areas over the course of the academic year. They also participate in two all-Scholars training opportunities to enhance their understanding of Cleveland and social change, and complete a written final reflection.

Students who meet the program’s criteria will receive a Certificate of Distinction recognizing their commitment to community. Both undergraduate and graduate students of all years and majors are eligible to become Civic Engagement Scholars, and many students elect to participate in the program multiple years.

The Scholars enrollment form is due by 11:59 p.m. EST on Sunday, Sept. 19.
