This four-year scholarship is awarded annually to incoming first-year students who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership or initiative in the area of community engagement or service through their school, community or church, and who have shown high academic achievement. The Community-Engaged Fellows are involved in a host of diverse, hands-on community opportunities throughout the Cincinnati region drawing upon principles of social justice, community building, and public policy. They are guided by faculty and community engagement professionals on campus and in the field.

For Fall 2022, the Community-Engaged Fellowship is valued at $30,000 per year and will be awarded to eight incoming first-year students.

The Community-Engaged Fellowship is tuition restricted and will replace any previous Xavier merit scholarship offer.
