Annual Community Service No-Essay Scholarship

Community Service No-Essay Scholarship

The Annual WiseGeek Community Service No-Essay Scholarship is a $500 award dedicated to empowering young volunteers. It's open to undergraduate and high school senior students who exemplify the spirit of community service, acknowledging their critical role in enriching society and personal development.

Scholarship Award: $500


About the Scholarship

The WiseGeek Community Service No-Essay Scholarship recognizes the vital role young volunteers play in our communities. Notably, teenagers in the U.S. contribute 2.4 billion hours annually to volunteer work, valued at $34.3 billion to the economy. This significant involvement not only benefits communities but also the volunteers themselves. Youth who volunteer are less likely to engage in destructive behavior and more likely to succeed academically and civically. 

This scholarship supports deserving, community-minded students of all education levels and fields of study, helping them pursue their education with less financial burden. In commitment to our communities, we hope this scholarship encourages these future leaders to continue their exemplary service.
