Community Engagement and Leadership Education Center (CELE)
The Carlson Center does not require students to record their volunteer hours, however professors and organizations might require students to keep a record. Tell students it is an excellent idea to keep track of their hours even if it’s not a requirement because it can be used on their resumes!

There are also some interesting options for STEM majors. Check the OMSFA database for more options (you can search for scholarships open to international students and study abroad scholarships) and email Sara if you’d like to ask questions or set up an advising appointment.

A student may opt to register for 1 credit if it means avoiding an additional registration fee. Students may also register for more than 5 credits.
