Will the amount of the award change?

The amount of the full-time Segal AmeriCorps Education Award is based on the maximum amount of the Pell grant for the award year in which the Corporation approved the national service position.

The amount of the award a member may receive by completing a term in an approved national service position will change to correspond to the amount of the Pell Grant, and may change every year. However, once an award is earned the amount does not change to reflect future changes in the updated amount of the Pell Grant. Awards earned in prior years will not increase in value.
