Bonner Leaders live and breathe service. As the only university in Maryland with a Bonner program, NDMU develops Bonner Leaders to build close relationships with non-profit community partners and immerse themselves in the reality of the population they serve.
Bonners start by learning the strengths and needs of the non-profit before gradually increasing their role and responsibilities to tackle various social issues. Service is designed to align with academic goals and career aspirations so that Bonners will graduate with resume-boosting skills, knowledge, and experience.
Over the course of four years, the role of Bonner Leaders evolves in the following ways:
All students are required to:
Students receive scholarship funds to be used toward on campus housing expenses.
Students will be notified and interviewed by The Bonner Leadership team.
Finalists who are unable to attend the in-person interviews will be able to interview via Skype or phone.
