Moellership [moh-ler-ship] noun: A Center for Leadership & Social Change program that provides funding for students to engage in a summer of service. See also: amazing, unforgettable, social change
The Moellership Program, named for its founder Bill Moeller, provides undergraduate and graduate students at Florida State University the opportunity to focus 8 – 12 weeks of their summer on service at a non-profit agency. Students receive a stipend of up to $4,000 for participation in the program.
Examples of past projects include working in a community garden in Tallahassee, serving at a camp for children with chronic illnesses in North Carolina, engaging in bicycle advocacy in Washington, D.C., implementing a reading curriculum in South Africa, caring for people with HIV/AIDS in Spain, designing a poultry production project in Tanzania, and promoting sustainability in Brazil.
Current Florida State University students, both undergraduate and graduate, are eligible to apply, provided they have a minimum 2.75 GPA, have completed at least one semester at FSU, and will enroll at FSU in the semester following their Moellership experience. To participate during the summer, students cannot graduate before the following December. Students with previous service experience and a desire to collaborate with communities to create positive change are encouraged to apply.
Applications are due Dec. 18 by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time.
