Education Award Information

AmeriCorps members who successfully complete a term of service earn the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award.

Education Awards may be used to pay costs of attendance at qualified post-secondary educational institutions, as well as to repay qualified student loans. The dollar amount of a full-time award is tied to the maximum amount of the Pell Grant, and varies from year to year. Currently, AmeriCorps and VISTA members may earn up to the value of two full-time education awards and have seven years from the date they earned each award to use it.

Montana Campus Compact (MTCC) Segal AmeriCorps Education Award Matching Program
