Who Must Complete a Service Project
All recipients of the Illinois Scholarship Program (ISP) Scholarship must complete a service
project between the fist and second semester in college. Payment of installment two of your
scholarship is dependent upon the completion of a pre-approved service project by the
chairperson of the MEF Scholarship Committee.

Purpose
The purpose of the service project is to reinforce the practice of helping others who are in need
and enhance the leadership skills of recipients. This is central to TRIO, MEF and the spirit of the
ISP Scholarship.

Project Duration
There is no set project length. However, the project must be completed before the second
installment of the scholarship is paid. Also, there should be meaningful benefits from the
services provided and duration of service is often central to the benefit stream. The service
project must be completed and the final report submitted by no later than January 15,
2006.

Impact
Service projects must have a measurable or discernible impact. Each Service Project Supervisor
shall be responsible for evaluating the impact of services provided by the ISP Scholar.

Types of Projects
Acceptable service projects include, but are limited to, the following:

       1. Volunteering as a tutor or mentor for your local elementary or high school
       2. Serving as mentor for students in other TRIO programs, i.e., Upward Bound, Talent
          Search, etc.
       3. Working with a local Boys or Girls Club
       4. Assisting local churches with their service projects, i.e., a breakfast program for
          young children
       5. Volunteering at a local shelter for battered women
       6. Initiating/participating in a voter education project for teenagers/college students
       7. Organizing a local chapter of the TRIO Association
       8. Developing and presenting a workshop at your state TRIO Conference, the MAEOPP
          Student Leadership Conference
       9. Rallying students to support TRIO and Student Financial Aid at the state or national
          level
