The Adler School (Chicago and Online campuses) would like to recognize those who have served the community through the AmeriCorps programs in the following ways:
The School will waive the application fee for current AmeriCorps members and alumni. Students should contact the Office of Admissions to get their application fee waived and provide the appropriate verification.
The School will provide six new AmeriCorps matching grant awards annually up to $5,550 each for newly admitted student to any of our Chicago campus or online programs. Upon admission to the Adler School, students will receive a matching scholarship that will be applied across the first year of their program of study. Students should submit a completed Adler School application for admission and verification of an AmeriCorps Educational Award no later than March 1st. Students may apply for fall admission prior to completing their AmeriCorps service, and awards will be matched upon receipt of the AmeriCorps voucher. In this case, students should submit a letter from a program supervisor.
Academically competitive applicants will be automatically considered for additional scholarships through the Adler school.
