Sacramento Civic Engagement Scholarship

Drexel University is an institution known for innovation and change, and partnering with its community to make a difference. In a world that is relentlessly globalizing, urbanizing, flattening, and undergoing tectonic demographic shifts, the need for our higher education institutions to fulfill their potential in all of these roles is intensifying.

In recognition of the importance of providing essential tools for future leaders in the region, Drexel is awarding three $15,000 scholarships to civic-minded individuals. The scholarship can be applied to tuition to any of the part-time graduate degree programs offered at Drexel University Sacramento.

Criteria for Award

Drexel University has provided this scholarship to help develop the next generation of business, non-profit and civic leaders whose skills will be of great importance to our region as we continue our emergence as a destination location for industry and families. Candidates for the award should demonstrate:

  • Community Service

    The committee considers not simply your community service but, more importantly, the impact your service has had on a particular individual or group. The committee considers volunteerism, service learning, fieldwork or internships that show civic responsibility and engagement.

  • Leadership Ability

    Demonstrated leadership ability and commitment to the region.

Candidates must also have submitted an application to Drexel University Sacramento (the application is free and on-line) and have completed the application by the deadline for completion of the application to Drexel.
