To recognize student contributions made in the improvement of campus student life, Student Leadership Stipends are awarded to students who volunteer their time and talent toward student life services, programs, activities or other aspects of student life. Stipends are awarded each fall and spring semester to applicants who meet the criteria below:
- Applicants must be enrolled and actively attending at least half-time (six or more credits) during the term of application.
- Applicants must demonstrate volunteer leadership and involvement efforts to improve services, programs, activities, or other aspects of student life on campus.
- Award recipients must have completed at least one term at Anoka-Ramsey Community College.
- Award recipients must be making satisfactory academic progress (carry a minimum cumulative 2.00 GPA and a minimum cumulative earned percentage of 67%).
Student Leadership Stipends, managed through the student life funds allocation process (see Policy 2B.5 Student Life), range in value from $50-$1,000. The Student Leadership Stipend Committee for each campus shall review applicants and select recipients of Student Leadership Stipend amounts based upon the applicant’s breadth and depth of leadership and involvement during the term.
The Student Leadership Stipend committees are chaired by the appropriate Student Life designee and shall include one faculty representative endorsed by the faculty association and the advisor of the Campus Student Association as members.
