CNU Bonner Service Scholars

CNU Bonner Junior Journey to Ecuador

CNU Bonner Junior Journey to Ecuador

The Bonner Program is a four-year, developmental program that educates, equips, and inspires students to engage with our local community and beyond. Through a partnership with the prestigious Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation, Christopher Newport belongs to a national network of more than 75 colleges and universities who support four-year, service scholarships.

Bonner Service Scholars are placed on small, site-based teams and serve at least 10 hours each week during the school year, for a combined total of more than 300 hours each year. In addition to direct service, Bonners participate in program development, policy research, national conferences, skills trainings, and other development activities.
