The Clinton School of Public Service is a proud partner institution of the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award.

AmeriCorps members are eligible for a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award after successful completion of a service term. The award can be used to pay for college or vocational school, to pay back qualified student loans, or in some cases can be transferred to children or grandchildren.

The dollar amount of a full-time education award is tied to the maximum amount of the U.S. Department of Education’s Pell Grant. AmeriCorps members may earn up to the value of two, full-time education awards and have seven years from the date they receive the award to use it.

Each year the Clinton School offers up to five single-match scholarships of AmeriCorps Education Awards (AEA) to well-qualified admitted MPS applicants. In order to be considered for one of these limited single-match scholarships, an admitted AmeriCorps alum must have an eligible AmeriCorps Education Award that has not yet been used. Students who have already used their AmeriCorps Education Award are not eligible to be considered for one of the five matching scholarships.

However, please note that any admitted AmeriCorps alumni, even those not eligible to be considered to the AEA match, will be considered for standard Clinton School scholarship eligibility for the MPS degree program, along with all other admitted Clinton School applicants. AmeriCorps alumni who receive one of the matching scholarships will be notified in their MPS admission decision letter.
