Kathryn and Darren Ash established the Ash Service Award to cultivate and support a culture of locally focused community service within the Morehead Honors College. Awards support Honors students who intern full-time in the summer on behalf of a local or state service organization, supporting programming that improves communities.
To be eligible, you must be an Honors student in good academic standing who, as of the summer, will be a rising second-, third-, or fourth-year student.
The recipients of the Ash Service Award receive a $3,500 stipend to cover their cost of living while interning for a local service organization for approximately 8 weeks full-time in the summer. Upon completing the required service hours, recipients must provide documentation of the hours served and a report detailing the internship.
Competitive applicants will have demonstrated a commitment to community service through prior sustained involvement. Applicants must provide documentation of organizational support and an already-established relationship to be considered for the award.
Applicants for the award are due in April.
