Scholarship Opportunities

The Knapp Fellowship for Entrepreneurial Service-Learning originated in a 2010 endowment which makes it possible for exceptional GW students to bring creative concepts into practice that align with their respective academic goals. The fellowship awards $10,000 annually to the most innovative service-learning proposals and is a great opportunity for social entrepreneurs to win capital for developing their projects.

The application and important information regarding eligibility requirements and deadlines can be found on the fellowship's official website or by contacting our colleagues from the Center for Civic Engagement and Public Service.
