2004-2005 Call for John Glenn Scholars in Service-Learning

With support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, The John Glenn Institute for Public Service and Public Policy at The Ohio State University has established the John Glenn Scholars in Service-Learning. During 2004-2005, the Institute will recognize ten scholars whose scholarship efforts contribute to advancing the understanding of or adoption of service-learning, with specific emphasis on K-12 education.

The John Glenn Institute will aggressively seek contributions from scholars whose work is addressing gaps in service-learning research as well as in insulated pockets not currently part of the service-learning mainstream. Areas of emphasis for 2004-2005 include: curriculum connections, social justice issues and education, school and community partnerships, student development, critical issues and priorities, math/science, learning theory, and educational policy and reform. Contributions from rising scholars who are undergraduate or graduate students and conference presenters at the 2004 International Conference on Service-Learning will also be featured again this year. Descriptions of the areas of emphasis can be obtained on the Institute’s website.

Selection as a Scholar carries an honorarium of $1000; recipients are also recognized as a John Glenn Scholar in Service-Learning. Scholar selections are featured on the Institute’s website and publicized on a national level with specific attention focused on papers submitted as part of the selection process. Each paper will generate up to four different 1-2 page advisories tailored to relevant groups and in formats that are immediately accessible to teachers, the media, policy makers, or grant makers.

Upcoming areas of emphasis include: 1) curriculum connections and 2) social justice issues and education, with applications due on June 18, 2004. Applicants should submit a copy of their curriculum vitae and a copy of a single paper upon which the selection review will be based. Papers may report original research on service-learning; develop teaching, practice, policy, or resource development strategies for service-learning; link service-learning to broader social goals; or otherwise further the adoption of or understanding of service-learning in K-12 schools. Papers may be new research or may appear in other sources.
