What about paying student loans during your term of service?

A member may be eligible for forbearance from the loan holder for a qualified student loan. During a period of forbearance, the member will not have to make payments, although interest continues to accumulate on the loans. If the loan was in forbearance, after the successfully completed term, CNCS will pay all or a portion of the interest that accrued on qualified student loans during the term of service. This amount is in addition to the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award.
