Please join the Gephardt Institute for Civic and Community Engagement for IdeaBounce, a dynamic event that invites junior-level Civic Scholars to share their visions for their Civic Summer experiences in a lively two-minute presentation format.
A reception will follow for those attending the event in person. Guests will be invited to come together in the Elizabeth Gray Danforth Butterfly Garden, located adjacent to Stix House. This is an opportunity to provide feedback to and facilitate connections for our students.
The Civic Scholars Program, comprising four semesters of academic course work, combines self-exploration, peer relationship building, and experiential education to lead students to a deeper understanding of themselves and their roles as civic agents.
Each Scholar receives a $5,000 academic summer award to be used the summer between junior and senior years for a substantial civic project of their choice, developed in consultation with their mentors and instructors. Scholars design a civic summer project that could include endeavors such as an unpaid nonprofit internship, a self-directed project, international service experience, or community-engaged research. IdeaBounce is a key milestone in the Civic Summer design process.
This is a hybrid event with the opportunity to attend virtually or in person.
This event will be available to attendees virtually via Zoom. Reminders to join the event will be sent prior to the event.
This event will take place at Stix House on the Washington University Danforth Campus. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, seating will be limited and available only to registered guests. Attendees will be expected to follow WashU’s public health requirements and any other guidelines deemed necessary.
