The R.A.C.E. Scholars Program (formerly known as the R.A.C.E. Internship Program) is designed to expose interested students to volunteerism, community service, and the different duties & responsibilities of each R.A.C.E. E-Board member. Each E-Board member will be leading their own committees: Developmental (President/Vice President), Finance & Fundraising (Treasurer), Records (Secretary & Mentor Coordinator), Public Relations & Advertising (Public Relations Chair), Community Affairs & Outreach (Community Service Chair), & Entertainment (Events Coordinator)
There are two types of R.A.C.E. Scholars: Credited Scholars, which will comprise of 15 students (registered for 16 or 17 credits) who will earn up to three credits for volunteering and Non-Credited Scholars, which will consist of 20 students (mostly freshman or those who are registered for 18 credits or more). YOU MUST BE AT LEAST A SECOND SEMESTER FRESHMAN TO EARN COLLEGE CREDITS THROUGH R.A.C.E. (UNIVERSITY POLICY). Each Credited Scholar will have an Executive Board member as their supervisor, who will track your progress and make sure that you complete your volunteer hours. Each freshman R.A.C.E. Scholar will also be a member of our College Transitions Program. As a member of the College Transitions Program, you will be assigned an E-Board member who will act as a mentor and make sure that you are keeping up with your academics as well as getting involved with R.A.C.E.
At the end of the semester, we will evaluate everyone's performance and from there, we will choose 15 permanent, Junior E-Board members. Those 15 Junior E-Board members will gain three credits in the Spring, as well as have the opportunity to join the Executive Board for the 2012-2013 school year or before if positions arise. All positions, except for President and Vice President will be up for election. The position of Interns/Junior E-Board Committee Chair is a one year commitment and is ONLY OPEN to members of the Junior E-Board Committee.
