Community & Public Service (CPS) Marshall Fellows

Service should be one of the central components of a CPS Marshall. 

How to Plan Your CPS Marshall Project

The proposal for a CPS Marshall project must be developed with a faculty advisor before the application is submitted so that the service project is presented within an academic framework. 

Service should be one of the central components of a CPS Marshall. The service should be under the auspices of a recognized and respected agency, foundation or reputable group. The student should have some demonstrable ability and expertise to carry out the service project. The student must provide adequate background about the proposed agency, foundation or group.

The student should have evidence of prior commitment to the service activity, including class work, volunteer work and/or internship experiences.

For more information, download the CPS Marshall project guidelines.
