Student Service Programs

Mercer is accepting nominations for Mercer University's Certificate of Achievement and Service Excellence (CASE) program for rising sophomores and juniors in high school. This program seeks to identify and recognize students who embody Mercer's commitment to research and service.

To be eligible for Mercer University’s CASE program, students must have a 3.5 GPA and demonstrate service involvement during high school. The GPA is defined by the school’s reported GPA and can be weighted. Service involvement is defined as continuous involvement in at least one service project and/or organization membership centered on service.

The deadline to be nominated is this Friday, January 12, 2024. See your high school counselor to be nominated ASAP.

FSU recognizes students with an outstanding record of community service and leadership who want to continue that commitment at FSU. We encourage you to share this opportunity with graduating seniors whose interests align with this commitment.
