Discover your home, engage the world
The Summer Service Learning Program (SSLP) offers students the opportunity to serve for eight weeks with non-profit organizations related to healthcare, homelessness, immigration, education, and other social issues. Sponsored by Notre Dame Clubs across the country, SSLP students receive a $3,000 scholarship and three credits toward a variety of minors and majors.
The application for the 2021 SSLP opens September 18 and the deadline for submission is October 11, 2020. In light of COVID-19, SSLP 2021 participants will serve exclusively in their home communities at an SSLP site sponsored by local Notre Dame Clubs. Students will either live at home or "on-site" at an SSLP service organization within a short drive to home. In-person service remains the preference, but if it becomes impossible to do so, then students will remain partnered with the same organization and will instead provide virtual service. This arrangement will provide the greatest assurance possible that students will be able to participate in the SSLP placement full time for eight weeks, receive a $3,000 scholarship, as well as three credits.
