New AmeriCorps Nationwide Initiative: Schools of National Service

Posted by AmeriCorps on December 22, 2020

AmeriCorps has announced a new nationwide initiative to improve college access and affordability for AmeriCorps alumni. Through the project, individual Schools of National Service will provide incentives and awards to AmeriCorps alumni in recognition of their service, encouraging them to attend their institution.  

As AmeriCorps prepared to launch Schools of National Service, nearly two dozen schools pledged their support, officially becoming among the latest schools to be named a School of National Service. They join the more than 200 higher education institutions who were already participating in AmeriCorps’ Segal AmeriCorps Education Award Matching Program and will now also officially be listed as Schools of National Service. This includes four-year institutions, community colleges, technical schools, and graduate programs.
