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. This opportunity is open to any student enrolled in the Schools of Medicine, Nursing and Public Health during the 2014-2015 academic year who has an interest in long-term service and community-based professional development.

SOURCE is now accepting applications for the 2014-2015 SSS cohort!  Applications are due by Wed, April 9th at 11:59pm (submission info found at the end of the application).


There are two ways that students can apply for acceptance into the SOURCE Service Scholars Program:

1.      Apply for a SOURCE-identified project (recommended): Projects have been identified with SOURCE partners that are already approved to qualify as strong SOURCE Service Scholar projects. Applicants should review all pre-identified projects online and rank up to 5 top choices of interest. Applications will be reviewed, and top candidates for each project will be invited to interview with the CBOs.

2.      Submit your own community project: We only recommend this option when a student has an existing partnership with a SOURCE partner CBO or officially recognized service-based student group. It is not advisable for students to cold call organizations with a project idea. The project must fulfill the criteria detailed here on our website (note: the timeline for student identified projects will differ from the pre-identified projects).
