Leadership and Scholarship Opportunities

Service-Learning Internships: Interns play a pivotal role in the Service-Learning Program, which places over 600 UMBC students each year at service sites.  Service-Learning Interns are student leaders who aspire to take on a more challenging role to lead various service sites.  The S-L Intern position offers numerous opportunities for personal and professional development, as well as linkages to future leadership positions.
