The Peter E. Haas Public Service Leaders Program provides need-based scholarships to undergraduate student leaders who have demonstrated a significant commitment to off-campus service activities. Students are eligible for awards of $2,000–$6,000 for the academic year, based on a combination of financial need and impact of project/service. The program engages students in a year-long training and support system to ensure their personal success in their service, including monthly trainings, reflective dialogues, and regular coaching/advising sessions with professional staff.

“Understanding that not all leaders look or act the same and that is ok was a major step. The PSC definitely helped me take that step and for that I am extremely grateful. I feel in doing so I was able to act as a valuable resource for my community and program and will be even more useful in the future.”
