leadership program scholarships + awards



Students who regularly participate in the LTU Service Saturday projects as well as other volunteer opportunities through their student organizations and local non-profit organizations are eligible for a variety of scholarships and awards throughout the year.


There are federal-level opportunities for volunteer-based scholarship. FinAid provides information about scholarships and financial aid for volunteering and community service. These scholarships reward you for helping others. It's a nice way of doing well by doing good. In addition, students who are involved in volunteering and community service should ask whether there are any awards available at the location where they perform their community service.

Michigan Campus Compact recognizes students across the state of Michigan for devoting their time and talents to building stronger, safer, and connected communities. There are three award: Heart and Soul, Commitment to Service, and Outstanding Community Impact. To nominate students who you think deserve these awards, please fill out this form.

Lawrence Tech students are nominated through the Office of Leadership Programs as well as the President's Office.Awards are presented to students during the month of April in Lansing.

The Lawrence Tech Student Volunteer of the Year Award was established to recognize students who have made positive contributions to their community through volunteerism and service.

Nominations can come from fellow students, faculty, or staff. Individuals can also nominate themselves.

Nomination forms for 2013 - 2014 are not yet available. Check back soon.

Recipients of the award are recognized every year at the Student Government Awards Banquet.

2012-2013 Student Volunteer of the Year- Kimberly Klieber

Since 1994, Michigan's Governor and her/his spouse have been hosting the Governor's Service Awards to pay tribute to outstanding volunteers from across Michigan. These volunteers demonstrate the power of giving and caring every day, and the Governor's Service Awards are one small way we can thank them for their commitment. Although volunteers don't expect accolades, we know volunteer recognition leads to volunteer retention.
