Legacy Sustainability Scholars

Legal Sustainability Scholarships

The Ettling Center for Civic Leadership & Sustainability and UIW’s Student Government Association  collaboratively created the original Sustainability Scholars program to support sustainability efforts and initiatives on the UIW campuses in the Spring of 2016.

The purpose of the Legacy Sustainability Scholars is to maintain, support, promote and bring awareness to UIW and the San Antonio community of the balance of human development and growth with the welfare of the natural world, both in the present and for the future. In alignment with the tenet of Catholic Social Teaching and the emphasis of social justice supported by the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, the Sustainability Scholars will ensure that the University continues to meet the ecological needs in ways that protect and restore the natural environment. Thus, the Legacy Student Sustainability Scholars will:

  • Support, assist, and conduct sustainable service projects/tasks each semester which will include the maintenance of the UIW Campus Gardens (expansion of gardening projects may go beyond the UIW campus boundaries and be conducted with local/regional/international community partners)
  • Sustainability Scholars may conduct other ‘sustainability projects’ in addition to gardening; other ‘sustainability projects’ which will need programmatic funding will need to be approved by the Ettling Center for Civic Leadership via a formal proposal.
  • Receive a $500 stipend per academic semester (fall/spring only) after completing all necessary sustainable service criteria, including sustainable service activities.

Legacy Sustainability Scholars Application will become available on January 15, 2024 for the Spring 2024 academic semester. Should you have questions or need more information, please contact the Ettling Center for Civic Leadership & Sustainability at 210.283.6423 or ccl@uiwtx.edu.
