This presentation includes a lot of information about recruitment for Bonner Leader Programs and Bonner Programs in general, including about the integration of Federal Work Student, the application, the selection process, and nuances. 


These slides, specifically geared at Bonner Scholar Programs which must meet certain financial guidelines in their student selection to ensure that they are targeting low-income students, covers the basics of the program's financial aid guidelines for institutions with the Bonner Scholar Program. You can find more about those guidelines in the Reporting and Funding section.


These slides were developed to accompany the Bonner Recruitment and Selection Webinar, the third installment in the 2017-18 Senior Intern Webinar Series. This presentation provided strategies to recruit a diverse, committed, and representative cohort of Bonners, template materials to support the application and interview process, and numerous examples of successful recruitment and selection tactics. This webinar took place on January 24, 2018. You can watch the webinar recording and access other webinar installments in the Senior Intern Webinar Series section.



Bonner Recruitment Handout and Worksheet

For some years, the Bonner Foundation has also included detailed specific workshops on recruitment at that or other meetings. This handout is from one of those meetings. It has a number of useful questions and sections to work through to develop your recruitment strategy, application, and selection process. Bonner Recruitment Worksheet.pdf



Bonner Application Roadmap Tool

One of the most important pieces of the Recruitment and Selection process is crafting a Bonner application that is inclusive and also effective at distinguishing students who would be a good fit for the program. This roadmap was designed to help you put together a comprehensive Bonner application that meets the needs of your program and can help you effectively select a new cohort of committed Bonners. This resource was drawn from compiling resources from Bonner applications from ten different Bonner Scholar and Leader programs (Brown University, Guilford College, Mars Hill University, Middlesex County College,  Rutgers-Camden, The College of New Jersey, University of Tampa, University of Richmond, Ursinus College, and the College of Charleston). It is made so that you may tailor and edit each piece of the application to fit the needs of your program.

Bonner Interview Interview Questions  

Bonner Interviews, whether in person or via Skype, are an important element in determining a an applicant’s fit with the Bonner program and commitment to the values of your campus and community. This resource is a compilation of interview questions used by seven Bonner Scholar and Leader Programs (Brown University, Mars Hill University, Maryville College, Siena College, University of Tampa, Ursinus College, and Widener University), which you may adapt or use in your own interview process.
