Segal AmeriCorps Education Award

Segal AmeriCorps Education Award
Segal AmeriCorps Education Award is offered to those who have completed a term of national volunteer service. Approved AmeriCorps programs include AmeriCorps VISTA, AmeriCorps NCCC, or AmeriCorps State and National.

The scholarship is based on volunteer community service through an AmeriCorps community service program. Young adults who have spent 1-2 years in community service are eligible to receive a scholarship. Only community service with the AmeriCorps programs is required; academic records are not considered.

The scholarship award may be used for educational costs at eligible post-secondary educational institutions, including technical schools and GI-Bill approved educational programs. It can also be used to repay qualified student loans. Recipients have 7 years to use the awards.

The scholarship is offered through the Corporation for National and Community Service, a federal agency that helps more than 5 million people in the U.S. help their fellow citizens through volunteer service. The award honors Eli Segal who was a leader in national service and served as the first CEO of the federal Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS).

The deadline for this scholarship VARIES each year, and the award amount is usually $7,500.
