SOURCE (Student Outreach Resource Center)

SOURCE Service Scholars Program 

SOURCE is excited to announce the third year of the SOURCE Service Scholars (SSS) Program. SSS is a unique opportunity for students to make a long-term commitment to a Baltimore community-based organization (CBO) that is a SOURCE partner while receiving a $2,000 stipend. Scholars will receive training and guidance from SOURCE staff covering the following: service-learning theories and practices, project management, volunteer recruitment and management, and delivering and reporting on outcomes. Additionally, Scholars will engage in reflective practice throughout the program. These trainings will be delivered through the SOURCE Service Academy as well as one-on-one consultations with SOURCE staff.

Please note: We are now in round two of our recruitment, and therefore, this opportunity is only open to students enrolled in the School of Nursing’s Accelerated Nursing Program or Graduate level programs and School of Public Health’s MPH Program during the 2014-2015 academic year who have an interest in long-term service and community-based professional development. 

SOURCE is now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 SSS cohort from Accelerated Nursing and MPH students!  Applications are due by Monday, July 21 at 11:59 pm (submission info found at the end of the application).


Projects are identified with SOURCE partners that are already approved to qualify as strong SOURCE Service Scholar projects or can be proposed by students. Applicants review all pre-identified projects online and rank up their top choices of interest. Applications will be reviewed, and top candidates for each project will be invited to interview with the CBOs.
