"Take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly, and try another. But by all means, try something."
- Franklin D. Roosevelt
 
Program Description

Crises demand action. "Try something," said FDR in 1933, and we did. Then, just as this country was
emerging from the Great Depression, the Germans invaded Poland. Another crisis, another call for
bold action.

Faced with threats to our health, welfare and spiritual well-being, we must summon the willingness
to take action - to be courageous, resolute and public-spirited. More than ever, we value the person
who hasan authentic concern for her neighbors, the person who is ready to try something to help
those who are starving, those who are suffering from disease, and those whose faith has been shaken
by the crisis at hand.

Whether the critical need is for food, medical attention or spiritual sustenance, we each have a role
to play or a contribution to make. Agnes Scott College is extraordinarily proud that it has a program,
the Hubert Scholars Program for Internships in Public Service, that gives students the encouragement
and the means to contribute to the common good while exploring a career of service to the public.


Academic Subject Areas
The Hubert Scholars Program for Internships in Public Service is a model program, one that combines
experiential learning and exploration of vocation with service to humanity. Inspired in part by this program,
and mindful of national and international events, Agnes Scott College is renewing its commitment to
encourage all its students, and not just its Hubert Scholars, to be genuinely public-spirited, in the hope
that many of them, whether as career professionals or willing volunteers, will help meet the world's need for
food, medical attention and faith. 

The program encourages students to explore vocations that improve the lives of those in need: of
healthcare, social justice, education, food/shelter or spiritual sustenance. The themes for this program
include: Counselling, Education, Healthcare, Ministry, Public Health, Public Service, Social and Economic
Justice, and Social Work.


Credit Hours
The Hubert Scholars program is designed to encourage students to explore careers in Public Service and
provides a stipend for 200 contact hours of service to humanity. Students are also enrolled in the 4-credit
Independent 450 Internship Course for the Fall semester immediately following their summer internship.
