The AmeriCorps Scholarship Program offers 25 SIUE students the opportunity to complete 300 hours of community service in 1 calendar year (October 2014 - May 2015) at a non-profit agency of your choice.
When you break that down, it's only 9 hours of community service each week!
Once a student completes the community service requirement, the AmeriCorps participant will receive a scholarship valued at $1175 that can be used toward SIUE tuition, future tuition (at SIUE or other schools, graduate school, etc.), or toward any student loans.
Part of the AmeriCorps Scholarship Program includes 1 required monthly meeting that you must attend (no more than 1 hour each month).
An Information Meeting will be held WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 3rd at 4pm in SSC 1201 to discuss more details about the program and application process.
Applications can be found in the Kimmel Student Involvement Center.
Applications are due no later than WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10th at 4:30pm in the Kimmel Student Involvement Center.
