Often once joining the Bonner Program, students find themselves desiring to become even more involved. Sometimes that may mean designing a project or leading a meeting or two. The only limit is on a student's imagination! However, a new idea is not required for leadership because there are several structured ways to become involved as well!
The Bonner Congress is comprised of representatives from each Bonner Program nationally. Two Bonner Scholars from Davidson College serve as liaisons between the Davidson program and the Bonner Foundation. In addition to other responsibilities, these students will travel to two conferences (one in October and the other in the summer). This is a great way to make friends and to learn more about the Bonner Foundation!
The Bonner Steering Committee at Davidson College has the opportunity to offer feedback on the program and allocate the Bonner Community Fund. The Steering Committee is a great chance to learn about the granting process and the amazing work of fellow students in the community. Applications will be accepted in the fall and two students will represent each class.
This intern (and Bonner senior) assists with the management of the Bonner Scholars Program and often takes on special initiatives of the program such as Orientation or reflection activities. Students apply in the spring of junior year.
The Bonner Social Committee plans at least one social event for all Bonners each semester (usually in December and May). The senior intern will bring the committee together for planning at the beginning of each academic year.
Summer Internship with Bonner Foundation
The Bonner Foundation hosts several Bonner interns at their office in Princeton, NJ each summer. Interns usually work on a specific research project and help with other tasks in the office. If you're interested in this internship, let the Bonner Director know!
