Application: CARISA WINTERS ENDOWED SERVICE AWARD Application
The CARISA WINTERS ENDOWED SERVICE AWARD is an endowed scholarship with a value of $2,000 available to a sophomore or junior undergraduate student who has demonstrated, and plans to continue to demonstrate, a strong commitment to service, positively contributing to the student’s community. The award is designed to support a student with an interest in, and pursuit of, serving individuals, communities, and the nation.
The CARISA WINTERS ENDOWED SERVICE AWARD is given in memory of Carisa Winters, a former OSU student committed to serving others. This award is intended to serve as an assistantship to allow the recipient to pursue new service ideas; create ways of utilizing those ideas; create new structures for service and delivery; and/or target new audiences.
This award may actually fund the conceived project or support the student academically through payment of tuition, fees, books, room and board so that the student is freed up to further develop and implement the service project. The award will be given out on consecutive semesters awarding $1000 each of the two subsequent semesters fall, 2011 and spring, 2012 dependent upon satisfactory progress shown.

- The recipient will have a demonstrated record of service through the OSU Service-Learning Volunteer Center.
- The successful candidate will present the award evaluation team with viable concepts that either present new public service opportunities or improve upon previously implemented service projects.
- The proposal should be typed, double-spaced, and no longer than three pages.
- The candidate must demonstrate to the evaluation team how the award will be used to further the goals of the service concept.
- The three letters of recommendation must come from faculty, staff and/or community partners who know the applicant’s academic abilities, commitment to service, and potential to significantly contribute to the community.

- Final project will be presented to SLVC prior by end of second award semester.
I’m Daniel Feldman, founder of Kids Feeding Kids and a freshman at George Washington University. One of the reasons I’m able to attend this great school is the $5,000 STOP Hunger Scholarship I was awarded last year in recognition of our work in New Jersey fighting childhood hunger, one bake sale at a time. Check out my blog posting about the changing face of hunger.
Applications for this year’s Scholarships are now open and five more students will be awarded $5,000 to put towards college. So if you’re doing something great in your community to fight hunger, check out SodexoFoundation.org for all the details. You’ve got until Feb. 26 to apply for a STOP Hunger Scholarship – so get going!
The best part of getting a scholarship (aside from the obvious) is that your local charity will also get a grant to help even more people.
PS – So I’ve become a video star! See my interview on local TV news and my YouTube post. Next stop, Hollywood!
