About Eli Segal
To honor Eli Segal and continue his work of advancing national service in America, the Corporation for National and Community Service is pleased to offer the Eli Segal Fellowship program.
Eli Segal was a giant in the national service movement. He was a key architect of the 1993 national service legislation and served as the first CEO of the Corporation for National and Community Service. As CEO he successfully launched AmeriCorps and managed the creation of a new federal agency that united the longstanding Senior Corps and VISTA with the newer NCCC and Learn and Serve America programs. After leaving the Corporation, he remained a tireless friend and champion for service, serving on the boards of several organizations and helping build the AmeriCorps alumni movement.
In recognition of Eli Segal’s leadership and entrepreneurship, the Corporation’s Board of Directors has created the Eli Segal Fellowship. This prestigious fellowship will be open to AmeriCorps alumni who have exceptional leadership, drive, and commitment who will help to advance the mission and strategic goals of the Corporation.
