Pioneer Service Scholars

TWU students volunteering at city of Denton garden.

The Pioneer Service Scholars are students who have demonstrated their commitment to community service and to addressing social problems, but are sometimes unable to do unpaid community service work due to financial constraints. In addition, these are students who want to develop their community leadership skills while at Texas Woman’s University. Any student accepted to TWU, enrolled full-time, and in academic and disciplinary good standing as an enrolled student is eligible to apply. Funding provided by Jane Nelson Institute for Women's Leadership.

Approximately, fifty (50) Pioneer Service Scholars will be selected per year who will receive a stipend of $1,000 for the academic year ($500 per fall/spring semester). Pioneer Service Scholars may also just be selected for a single semester.Half of the semester stipend is credited to the student’s account at the beginning of each semester and half credited to the student’s account at the conclusion of each semester after completion of the scholarship requirements. Currently, scholarships are for fall/spring semesters, not summer sessions.

Join this illustrious group of service minded students today!

Applications for the 2020-2021 cohort of Pioneer Service Scholars are open until August 3rd!
