Are you a sophomore who is interested in community service? Consider applying for a Phillips Scholarship administered by the Minnesota Private College Fund.

Phillips Scholarships are awarded annually to six students from Minnesota private colleges who intend to dedicate a portion of their lives to community service. Scholarship candidates propose ideas for a self-designed summer service project; each campus may submit one student application for this competitive award of $16,400.

The University of St. Thomas has set a deadline of Friday, Dec. 3, for a two-page application and initial proposal of intended summer service projects. The application and more information may be found on the CILCE website.
