As a university that values a commitment to others and to the common good, we seek to expand the number of students who’ve participated in a service year. The experience gained from doing a service year program will be given strong consideration in the admission process.
Students (undergraduate and transfer) who have completed a service year as indicated on their application for admission and accept admission to W&M will receive an invitation to the W&M Service Year Leadership Program soon after they submit their intention to attend.
Membership includes the following:
A one-time $2,000 award to be used to complete a summer community-based research project or a summer internship in a non-profit
Automatic admission (application waiver) to the Aim 4 program
Automatic admission (application waiver) to the DC Summer Institute on Leadership and Community Engagement and $2,000-$4,000 award to offset of costs of the program
- Invitations to meet with guest speakers who are leaders in public service
