SCHOLARS IN SERVICE PROGRAM

To foster the next generation of Atlanta’s community leaders and philanthropists, Covenant House Georgia (CHGA) offers a scholarship program that is rooted in the spirit of service and designed to cultivate a dedication to community, lifelong learning, and humanity to high school students across the Metro Atlanta area.  

Students will come together* from October to January to learn the ins and outs of the non-profit community in Atlanta and to contribute their own strengths and skillsets to the continual improvement of our city. After learning about youth homelessness, service, and giving from some of Atlanta’s philanthropic leaders, the students will execute service projects designed to raise awareness and meet specific needs with respect to youth homelessness in Atlanta. As they work together to creatively address a prominent social issue, each student will also raise funds and awareness to make a profound impact in the lives of an often invisible subgroup of their own generation. At the conclusion of the program, a scholar will be awarded the $2,500 Scholars in Service Scholarship and will have the honor of presenting college-bound Covenant House youth a matching $2,500 scholarship.  

During their journey, scholars will make lasting connections with other students and Atlanta’s philanthropic leaders, build service into their resumes to reflect their personal values, and broaden their understanding of social issues and services. 

*We are currently monitoring CDC and local public health guidelines and may deliver aspects of the Scholars in Service Program virtually as needed.
