The Appalachian Transition FellowshipYear-long, full-time, paid program designed for 15 emerging community leaders who are committed to working in Central Appalachia for the economic transition of the region. This program offers the opportunity to spend a year working within host communities to help foster cross-sector (education, nonprofit, for-profit, philanthropy, and government) partnerships, provide needed capacity to regional efforts, and build personal and professional skills. Through institutional placements, independently designed projects, training, and mentoring, the program gives emerging leaders and host organizations skills and networks needed to advance economic and social change in the region.
Student Action with Farmworkers (SAF) Internship
SAF develops the leadership of college students from diverse backgrounds, giving them the opportunity to work directly with farmworkers in the Southeast. Each year, SAF trains approximately 30 students on farmworker issues, and places them to work full-time with migrant education programs, legal aid offices, rural health clinics, community-based organizations and farmworker unions. SAF interns increase the capacity of the organizations they work with by outreaching to over 5,000 farmworkers & their families each summer. If this sounds like something you would be interested in please visit: http://www.saf-unite.org/content/fields-internship

Bonner Hours Requirement
There have been some questions about this so please review the following: A main requirement of the Bonner Scholars Program and scholarship is that each student needs to complete 140 hours of community service each semester. Hours cannot be made up or rolled over from one semester to another. Hours must be entered in BWBRS to count. The contract all Bonners signed at the beginning of the year states that individuals with under 100 hours will be fined $100. Getting between 100 and 140 hours will be a fine of $50. There may be outstanding circumstances, but just be aware this is the policy.
Roads to College
