Segal AmeriCorps Education Award
The Segal AmeriCorps Education Award is a post-service benefit earned by individuals who complete an approved term of national service in AmeriCorps programs. Institutions can opt into our Education Award Matching Program and further incentivize by matching the amount of the education award, offering service scholarships, or waiving application fees.
Institutions such as Bard College in California and the George Washington Graduate School of Education and Development in Washington, D.C. offer programs in teaching and other education fields. For a complete list visit Matching Instititions.
