Do your part. Become a fellow.

Pacific College Corps fellows demonstrate a high level of motivation and community focus and will work with one of four focus areas during their time as a fellow. Enrolled students from across programs and majors are welcome to apply for the College Corps fellowship and will earn credit and funding in exchange for their service during a full academic year.

Benefits

Fellows who complete 450 hours of service over the academic year (15 hours per week during fall and spring semesters) will be eligible for up to $7,000 in living allowance. Students who complete all program requirements are eligible for a $3,000 Segal Education Award to be used in a later semester or academic year.

Fellows are required to take two 2-unit “Civic Action” seminars during the academic year they serve (one each semester) that will guide them in critical reflection about their service learning. This form of experiential education provides students with deep learning about themselves, their communities and their purpose. Fellows will produce a group project for the community partner at the conclusion of the fellowship. The course also satisfies both the Diversity requirement and the Civic & Global Inquiry area in the General Education program.

Fellows will sharpen career skills in the Civic Action Seminar class and at the community or civic organization where they complete their service assignment. Oral and written communication, professional etiquette, critical thinking and problem-solving skills, and the ability to work in teams are transferable skills that students will develop in the program—skills that employers and graduate programs seek.

Fellows will work with dedicated staff to ensure that committing to the College Corps Fellowship will not delay their graduation date. We have partnerships with Career Services and Financial Aid on campus.

Eligibility

Undergraduate students at University of the Pacific who have sophomore, junior or senior class standing in the fall semester are eligible. Students must have a 2.0 or higher overall Pacific GPA and be in good academic standing. Students must also have the ability to enroll in the 2-unit Civic Action seminar each semester in addition to maintaining full-time Pacific enrollment.
