The Bush School of Government and Public Service at Texas A&M partners with AmeriCorps in its residential degrees only (not the online certificates or the Executive online degree). The Bush School offers a Master of Public Service and Administration and a Master of International Affairs. We waive the application fee for AmeriCorps applicants. We will award a minimum scholarship of $5,000 in the first year, equal to about 40% of current Texas A&M tuition/fees, for any qualified AmeriCorps alumni applicant. Applicants may earn higher levels of aid (Up to $15,000 in year one) based on the merits of their application. The scholarship is renewable in their subsequent year of the program pending satisfactory academic achievement. For out-of-state students, a scholarship award will also include a non-resident tuition waiver that qualifies them for Texas residency rates (about a $9,000 savings). Additionally, more seasoned AmeriCorps alumni may be able to waive the professional internship requirement based on prior relevant work experience.
