Education Award Matching
On June 9th, 2015, Montana Campus Compact announced that 13 Montana colleges and universities are now offering to match funds for AmeriCorps alums who use their Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards at their institutions. This initiative led by Montana Campus Compact is a great post-service benefit for AmeriCorps alums to further their education, all while receiving more tuition funding to attend a university or college right here in Montana. Currently, more than 140 colleges and universities across the U.S. offer matching tuition funding or service scholarships to AmeriCorps State and National, AmeriCorps VISTA, and AmeriCorps NCCC alums who have completed a term of national service.

Through this initiative, employers have increased access to a dedicated, highly qualified, and mission-oriented pool of potential employees, and national service alumni have additional opportunities to apply their skills in the workplace. More than 600 employers are now a part of the Employers of National Service program, which recognizes the valuable skills gained by more 1 million Americans who have participated in AmeriCorps since 1994 and the 230,000 who have participated in the Peace Corps since 1961. https://www.nationalservice.gov/partnerships/employers-national-service/search-network
