Midwest Campus Compact Citizen-Scholar (M3C) Fellows Program
The Midwest Campus Compact Citizen-Scholar (M3C) Fellows Program is a
program designed to integrate education with civic engagement. The
program strives to develop a peer network and provide support that
enables students to respond
effectively to local community issues.
Students who are involved in this
program will receive a financial
award to use toward tuition, or federally funded student loans, in
return for community service.
The M3C Fellows are a team of primarily first-year students committed to
community service and leadership development. Students accepted into
this program are asked to complete the following:
- Serve 300 hours in the Greater Green Bay Area Community and in their
home communities as AmeriCorps Citizen-Scholar Fellows (hours
requirement met through after-school tutoring at local elementary
schools, Emerging Leaders workshops and meetings, independent service,
and training sessions).
- Recruit at least 5 volunteers to serve in non-profit (including
faith-based) organizations to improve the well being of the community.
In return for their service in the program, M3C Fellows receive:
$1,000 AmeriCorps education award
Federal Work-Study pay for time spent tutoring
The opportunity to be part of a dynamic team of first-year students and LSE staff
The opportunity to apply for a partial scholarship for
winter or Spring Break Service TRIPS
, which would count toward meeting the
required 300 hours of service.
The Department of Leadership, Service, and Engagement has developed this program in conjunction with Midwest Campus
Compact and AmeriCorps. The M3C Fellows program is located at campuses
throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan,
Kansas, Ohio, and Missouri. The program is supported by a grant from the
Corporation for National Community Service and managed by Midwest
