Community Service Scholarships

Community service can make a big difference in the lives of others, with college students alone contributing $6.7 billion worth of service to their local communities. As a reward for selfless students who engage in community service, and as an incentive to get others involved, there are many scholarships available for students with a history of service.


Volunteering not only helps improve your community and the lives of those around you, but has also been linked to mental and physical health benefits! Additionally, community service can improve your resume and increase your chances of getting hired, as employers are 82% more likely to hire candidates with volunteer experience.


However, only 25.7% of college students volunteer. This means that community service scholarships have a limited pool of applicants which will increase your chances of winning a scholarship. Furthermore, volunteering will help you stand out from the crowd when it comes to applying for graduate school or jobs!


To help you find the best scholarships for students with community service experience, we’ve compiled this list of scholarships available exclusively on Bold.org. You can start applying today by clicking on any of the scholarships above!

I am so grateful for the opportunities Bold.org has provided me to help fund my college education. The options are endless, and their commitment to helping and profiling successful students is remarkable.

My college education has and continues to be the most formative experience of my life, and the support and advocacy offered on Bold.org is the greatest recognition I can receive as a student.
