Civic Engagement Fellows

Through the Civic Engagement Fellows program, Moravian University students complete 200 community service hours during the course of one academic year (August–May) and receive a monetary stipend for their efforts. Students will serve at one location for the entire year in an effort to increase capacity at the host organization and to deepen relationships. Students will interview for their host placement of choice. 

This program is ideal for students already engaged in service activities off-campus, who wish to further develop their leadership abilities while gaining valuable hands-on learning experience.

Program Qualifications:

  • Must be enrolled as a full time student at Moravian University
  • Commit to complete 200 hours of service work over the course of the academic year
  • Have an interest in, and commitment to, community service, activism and/or social justice issues
