Segal AmeriCorps Education Award

In return for their service, members of AmeriCorps programs earn money for school in the form of an education award that can be used to pay education costs at approved postsecondary institutions, for future higher educational and vocational training pursuits, or to repay qualified outstanding student loans. The amount of the award is now tied to the maximum amount of the U.S. Department of Education’s Pell Grant. Information about New York State programs can be found by contacting: NYS Office for National and Community Service, Office of Children & Family Services, 52 Washington Street, Rensselaer, NY 12144, or by visiting and following the link to AmeriCorps.
