Participants in the Bonner Program become part of a community that supports each other on campus and off.
The National Bonner Foundation is a group for all Bonner Leaders alumni from across the country. Bonners quickly find their community extends beyond the University of Lynchburg. They go out to look for summer internships and professional positions after graduation and find Bonner alumni there to help.
Bonner Leaders are committed to learning about social justice issues and becoming agents of change in their communities. If you are passionate about making a difference in your community, then Bonner is for you.
Bonner Leaders are paid through federal work-study or campus work-study funding. The University of Lynchburg Bonner Leader Program aims to have 75% of participating students qualify for federal work-study funding.
