The Mercer Service Scholars (MSS) program was founded in 2000 upon the belief that gifted, motivated college students bring vision, energy, intellect, and hope to our communities, locally and globally. We believe that students are transformed by working in a program whose focus on the common good gives them a sense of purpose and meaning. Each year, a few select entering students are invited to become Mercer Service Scholars. They are selected because each has demonstrated a commitment to service and leadership as well as outstanding academic performance. Learn more.
