Who is a Bonner Student?
Bonner students are enrolled in American colleges and universities and committed to community service. These students were passionate about serving their communities before college. They have been chosen to receive financial aid or other assistance from the Bonner Program so that they may attend the university and continue to positively impact their communities. Most Bonner students come from low-income backgrounds, so the aid is important to their education. Hence, the Bonner Foundation’s motto is Access to Education, Opportunity to Serve; our intensive community service programs provide both.
