AmeriCorps Reaches 1 Million Members - Click to learn more

What is the maximum amount of an education award that can be earned?

Beginning with terms of service that were supported with 2010 funds, the maximum education award amount is equivalent to the maximum value of the Pell Grant for the award year for which the national service position was approved. Approval of national service positions is managed differently for VISTA and NCCC members than for AmeriCorps State and National members. VISTA and NCCC members may be eligible for the new amount several months earlier than AmeriCorps State and National members. To confirm the award amount for which you are eligible, call your program or project sponsor.
