The LaGrange College Servant Scholars program is a groundbreaking effort that brings academically gifted and highly motivated students together to study and to serve.
Servant Scholars are chosen by a faculty committee after a thorough application process during the spring of the sophomore year. The following fall, 12 LaGrange College juniors and 12 seniors move into the newly renovated Broad Street Apartments, located midway between campus and downtown LaGrange, and begin a two-year focus on scholarship directed at addressing community concerns.
Throughout their junior year, the Scholars participate in individual field experiences with local service agencies and provide updates to the college community through the Scholars Forum. During spring semester, Scholars make a proposal for a yearlong project based on their field experience, a project that will develop a long-term, research-based commitment to change in areas of concern within the community.
During their senior year, the Servant Scholars implement a yearlong group service project and at the end of the year, present the results of that endeavor.
