Description: Announcing the first EVER – AmeriCorps Alums Heller School National Service Scholarship Program.
An amazing $1 M scholarship program has been created by Brandeis University just for AmeriCorps alums and staff in recognition of your contributions to civic engagement and the greater good through the service you provide to your country and communities! This one-of-a-kind National Service Scholarship Program is designed to honor national and community service by recognizing those who have served in AmeriCorps.
All qualified AmeriCorps alumni applicants will be considered for one or more full tuition scholarships based on a supplemental essay describing the value of and plans for continued citizen service.
In addition, $10,000 in tuition remission will be available to every AmeriCorps alumnae who attend! The Heller School (for Social Policy and Management) also provides financial assistance through the Segal Education Award matching program, thereby raising the total Heller contribution to $15,000 for one year of AmeriCorps service and $20,000 for two years of AmeriCorps service. If you are attending the Heller School at Brandeis in one of the Masters programs you will be named “Heller School AmeriCorps Alums National Service Scholars” and be identified as having received this prestigious award in school materials, ceremonies and announcements.
All awardees will become lifelong members of the National Service Scholars Network. Membership in this network will provide professional development benefits including an annual conference hosted by Brandeis for the scholars.
The partial tuition scholarships combined with the full tuition scholarships will provide over $1M in tuition scholarships every five years the program is in existence.
The Heller School and AmeriCorps Alums Boston will have a formal announcement event on Thursday, November 5th. Alums are encouraged to attend for more information as well as numerous opportunities to network and connect with other national service folks. You’ll also hear from some great AmeriCorps Alums and current and former Heller School students. Enjoy FREE FOOD and DRINKS and consider the possibilities of your next steps. RSVP here.
