The CSB/SJU Bonner Leader Program, which is supported by the Bonner Foundation, began in 2008. CSB/SJU students fulfill their Bonner work study at over 15 different locations and complete more than 1,000 hours of service every year. Each student receives a work-study award in addition to a $2,500 scholarship, renewable for all four years that students remain in the program. The mission of the Bonner Leader Program is “to transform the lives of students and members, the life of their campuses, their local communities, and the world through service and leadership. The Bonner Program is designed to heighten the overall education students and members receive by asking them to engage in ongoing service work and helping them develop the experience, skills, knowledge and values necessary to make that work meaningful and lasting." Bonner Leaders are committed to social justice, civic engagement, spiritual exploration, diversity, international perspective and community building.
