Bonner Leaders are selected through a competitive process open to incoming first-year students. Applicants must meet regular admissions standards and have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Through the program, each student earns a $3,000 service-based stipend, renewable for all four years that students remain eligible in the program. The stipend is paid bi-weekly throughout the semester and not in one lump sum.
Bonner Leaders agree to enroll in at least 3 credit hours of the Bonner Seminar course every Fall semester and participate in planned community service activities during the year.
