AmeriCorps Scholarships Program

The AmeriCorps Scholarship Program offers 25 SIUE students the opportunity to complete 300 hours of community service in 1 calendar year (September 2018 – June 2019) at a nonprofit 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 $1,175 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 (date/time TBD) will be held to discuss details about the program and the application process.

Please email Meredith Bates or Carolyn Compton with any questions.
