M3C FELLOWS PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The M3C Fellows Program is conceptualized as a scholarship program to support cohorts of predominantly low-income and/or first generation college students who have demonstrated academic abilities while maintaining involvement and passion for community building through service and civic engagement activities. The M3C Fellows Program targets primarily first-year students (including full and part-time students, new enrollees, or students transferring from two-year institutions to four-year undergraduate baccalaureate programs). Each M3C Fellow is assigned to a Peer Mentor. Peer Mentors will be successful upper level students who can act as role models and guides for the Fellows to which they are assigned. Peer Mentors do not have to qualify as low-income or first-generation college students. Applicants are encouraged to contact their state network for guidance on whether their proposed student cohort is acceptable. The program will provide support to achieve the following primary goals: 1. Improve the retention rates and academic success of low-income and/or first generation college students. 2. Develop a peer network and provide support that enables students to serve as agents of civic engagement to respond effectively to local community issues. 3. Provide support that builds the capacity of postsecondary institutions to serve as agents of civic engagement and respond more effectively to local community issues. 4. Foster a deep appreciation and understanding of democratic values and citizenship among participants, and nurture the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behaviors that lead to a lifelong commitment to active community and civic participation. The M3C Fellows Program is based on research that demonstrates that two keys to successful matriculation through college are a) the development of a peer network and b) that students must feel and be actively involved in campus activities and/or in the local community (Astin, 1993; Astin, 1996; and Astin & Sax, 1998). The M3C Fellows Program is designed to provide access to scholarship resources to local programs. It is imperative that potential applicants understand that these resources will be made available directly to participating students upon successful completion of the fellowship program (students will receive an education award voucher). While some individual state networks may be able to provide operational support through existing grant programs, the M3C Fellows Program seeks to supplement and support existing activities on member campuses that are designed to foster civic engagement and retention of low-income and/or first generation students. While Campus Compact will provide some training and technical assistance, the M3C Fellows Program is not a source of operational support (i.e., staff salaries, supplies, etc.) for campus-based programs. Campuses will be selected to participate in the M3C Fellows Program based on a competitive application process. In order to be eligible to participate, each campus must meet, at minimum, the following basic requirements: 1. Each campus must agree to support a minimum cohort of 8 students. This will consist of 6 Fellows and 2 Mentors (1 mentor for every 3 fellows). 2. Each campus must identify a local M3C fellowship Campus Coordinator (i.e. faculty member, community service director, service-learning coordinator, campus minister, scholarship program coordinator, community-based organization representative, etc.). Please see Appendix A, “Stakeholder Roles and Responsibilities,” for more details.
M3C FELLOWS PROGRAM – CAMPUS APPLICATION Page 3

3. Each campus must identify a new or existing program into which the M3C Fellows Program could naturally be integrated (TRIO programs, Federal Work Study programs, community service programs, academic service-learning programs, first-year experience programs, etc.). In many cases, the person managing an existing program may also serve as the local M3C Campus Coordinator. Recipients of M3C Fellows Program grants will be encouraged to work closely with admissions offices, financial aid offices and other programs that serve the same or similar student groups. 4. Priority will be given to campuses that can provide stipends or additional financial support to a cohort of M3C Fellows (through institutional scholarships/stipends, Federal Work Study, or other resources). The Midwest Campus Compact Consortium is committed to limiting the administrative burden on participating campuses through the use of technology. Participating campuses will be responsible for tracking community service activities and verifying that members complete 300 hours of service within a calendar year via the on-line Timekeeping system. More information about each of the stakeholders roles and responsibilities is outlined in Appendix A (Stakeholder Roles and Responsibilities). M3C members are considered AmeriCorps members and will be required to complete their term of service (300 hours) within one calendar year. Upon the completion and certification of 300 hours of community service, each M3C Member will receive a $1,000 education award stipend from the Corporation of National and Community Service Trust Fund. The education award goes directly to the Member in the form of a voucher that can be applied toward existing federal student loans or future tuition. Participating institutions are encouraged to supplement this financial support through local scholarship/stipend resources, Federal Work Study, or other resources. Ultimately, the M3C Fellows program enables Campus Compact member campuses to meet two needs simultaneously. It provides a mechanism of support designed to improve the retention and academic success of first generation and low-income students while fostering the skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviors of active citizenship among these same students. These two goals are consistent with the mission of every college and university in our region, and accomplishing both goals is essential for the sustained health of our nation’s democracy.

Possible Administrative Fee While there is no charge for member campuses to participate in this program, the Midwest Campus Compact receives only a small administrative allowance from the Corporation for National and Community Service ($120/AmeriCorps member enrolled in the program). This administrative allowance is used to provide staffing for regional coordination of the M3C Fellows Program. These funds are provided based on the number of AmeriCorps members enrolled in the program. If a participating campus fails to enroll the number of members it requested, it not only prevents Campus Compact from allocating that position to another campus, it jeopardizes our ability to provide adequate coordination for the entire program. Therefore, if a participating campus fails to enroll its allotted AmeriCorps member positions prior to the annual deadline, the campus may be invoiced $120 for each position that was not filled. NOTE: This fee does not apply in situations where an individual enrolls in the program and does not complete his/her term of service.

Tutoring and Literacy Requirements and Resources Programs are not required to conduct tutoring activities. These resources are provided to ensure that those sites that do involve participants in tutoring activities are in compliance with the Corporation for National and Community Service guidelines. Per Corporation for National and Community Service guidelines, which were adapted from the No Child Left Behind Act enacted by the Congress in 2001, any site proposing to involve students in tutoring efforts must incorporate scientifically-based approaches to reading. Specifically, programs proposing tutoring and other literacy activities should address curricular, tutoring training, outcomes, and standards for tutors.
