Bonner Program Rules

We have a set of formal rules or guidelines that further elaborate on the core expectations described above. Because there is a different funding model for Bonner Scholar and Bonner Leader Programs, we have created a separate set of rules to reflect these differences.

Bonner Scholar Semester Reporting in BWBRS



Bonner Scholar Program Funding Guides 

The Bonner Scholar Programs are funded through a permanent Bonner Scholar Program Endowment held by 22 institutions. The first seven endowments were awarded in 1993; the remaining 19 endowment awards were made between 2006 - 2010.


The Bonner Scholarship funding guidelines can be found in the Bonner Scholar Rules here.  The annual Bonner Scholarship funding supports the following:


For Individual Bonner Scholars:


School Year Award

Bonner Scholars receive $1,500 per semester in Bonner Scholarship support and are expected to complete 140 hours of service and training during the semester.


Summer Service Fundinge

Bonner Scholars must complete two 280-hour (seven week) summer internships. They also may serve an optional third summer and may apply for additional funding.

    • Earnings stipend of up to $1,500 per summer for two summers of service

    • Living allowance of $1,000 in first summer and another $1,000 in a second summer (plus any unused from the first summer carried over to the second summer)


Rising Senior Fund

Bonner Scholars are eligible for a $500 to support a) a service placement in the summer prior to their senior year, b) a service project they are involved with, or c) costs to attend a training conference that will help their career aspirations.  


Loan Reduction

The loan reduction awards are being phased out. The Loan Reduction Award will be reduced on a pro-rated based on their grad year: Class of 2021 to $1,500, Class of 2022 to $1,000 and Class of 2023 to $500. These funds are paid directly by the institution to the educational lender.


For Bonner Scholar Programs:


Community Fund Guide 

In both the Fall and Spring semesters each year, $50 is allocated per Bonner Scholar to a pooled Community Fund that Bonner Scholars may apply for to support community service or site-specific projects involving or initiated by Bonners.  Awarding of these funds is governed by a committee of the Bonner Leadership Team.


Bonner First Year Service Trip

Up to $250 per first-year Bonner Scholar is available to cover expenses related to meeting the required first-year service trip. An additional $250 is available for each of two people (students or staff members) who attend in a supervisory capacity.  


Bonner Local Summer Service Fund

Each year there is a pooled fund available to help build local summer service placements for Bonner Scholars who want to stay in their college community. These projects should continue service projects or related initiatives that also operate during the school year. The maximum amount available for each campus each summer is determined by the number of enrolled Bonner Scholars based on a calculation of $75 per student per year.  


Bonner Student Congress Travel Fund 

Up to $250 is allocated per Bonner Congress Representative to attend the annual Bonner Congress meetings.


Special Projects Fund

Bonner Scholar Programs may submit proposals to access unused Bonner Scholarship funds from the prior academic year.  These proposals must be to support enrichment activities and to enhance student learning and development, not simply to implement current aspects of the Bonner Scholars Program.
