Bonner Leaders Program

Welcome to the Wagner College Bonner Leaders Program page! The Bonner Program at Wagner is the anchor program within the Center for Leadership and Community Engagement. This program, grounded in civic engagement and college access initiatives, provides students with opportunities to get involved within campus, Staten Island, and New York City. Participants commit to over 300 hours of civic engagement work, skill development and reflection based seminars, and service trips each year to earn up to $3,000.00 in scholarship award money. In addition, the program helps to create a collaborative campus culture through its unique, four-year cohort model.

The National Bonner Foundation seeks to fulfill the Bonner Network’s mission to provide diverse, low-income, under-represented, and first generation students with the opportunity to attend college, while engaging their talents and educations in building and supporting communities. As participants in the program, Bonners have access to this national network through conferences, program visits, and planning committees.

We invite you to navigate the page to learn more about the Bonner Program. Please take advantage of our resources and learning opportunities below.
