The TUN Volunteerism Scholarship

In our Share the Goals scholarship, we got students thinking about the Sustainable Development Goals and how to spread awareness around the idea of helping to make the world a better place.

The first step was awareness and now we’re moving forward. With these goals in mind, it’s time to take action! The TUN Volunteerism Scholarship is a great way to get involved with causes you care about and win scholarship money.

1. Create: a video, infographic, or an essay.

Write about a volunteer experience you had with a specific organization. Whether you want to talk about the cause behind it, or the lessons you learned from volunteering, write with the mindset of wanting to inspire others to take action as well.

Haven’t volunteered yet? Apply for a volunteer position and write about the change you hope to make through volunteering!
