Merit Aid for Community Service

Happy New Year!

To start your New Year on a positive note, I thought I would forward you a link to an article describing how some colleges are beginning to reward community service with merit scholarships:


I believe this will be a growing trend, and as we have discussed, active community service is an important component for your college "portfolio." Breadth of community service is not nearly as important or impressive as depth. So keep that in mind as you think about programs in which to become involved.

For those of you continuing to seek interesting volunteer opportunities in the immediate community, I recommend starting with the Volunteer Fairfax website:


You may also want to stop by your school college career center or guidance office for additional listings as community organizations frequently seek enterprising high school volunteers.
