Participating in the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award Matching Program gives your institution access to tens of thousands of AmeriCorps alumni with millions of dollars in Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards for tuition and fees.
AmeriCorps engages more than 75,000 men and women in intensive service each year through more than 15,000 nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based groups across the country. AmeriCorps alumni have the traits and skills colleges and universities value. They are committed to civic engagement, know how to problem solve, and offer leadership. AmeriCorps helps members develop leadership and job-related skills that are useful in their post-service pursuits:
- 90% of members report that they have gained new skills
- 80% of members report they are more likely to participate in community service
- 72% of members continue to volunteer after completing their service.
Joining the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award Matching Program can help your institution recruit highly motivated AmeriCorps alumni. By agreeing to provide a minimum of a $1,000 match, scholarship, or benefit for least one AmeriCorps alumnus each year, your institution will be added to our list of participating institutions that guides our alumni in their education choices.
