Continue Changing Lives & Livelihoods at Clark University Where Financial Aid Starts at $27,000
This article is sponsored by Clark University which offers a minimum 40% tuition remission award valued at nearly $27,000 per student in 2014. Clark is currently recruiting for its master’s degree programs in the Graduate School of Management (GSOM) and the International Development, Community, and Environment (IDCE) Department.
If you are looking for a place to grow the skills and tools you will need to continue to be a force for social change after your AmeriCorps service, Clark University’s graduate programs are the perfect option to consider. Like AmeriCorps, Clark’s mission is to develop dynamic leaders who make a positive impact on the lives—and livelihoods—of people in the U.S. and abroad.
All AmeriCorps alumni who are admitted to the graduate programs highlighted below are automatically offered a minimum 40% tuition remission award – this year, that value was nearly $27,000 per student. For talented students, the offer is frequently raised even higher, up to a full tuition remission. Read more.

Over 40 Employers Increased Support for AmeriCorps Alumni. Was Your Employer One of Them?
AmeriCorps Alums recently helped launch two initiatives to support you in landing your first job after AmeriCorps and advancing your career years after service. We named 25 AmeriCorps Alums National Service Corporate Champions who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to national service and its alumni in one or more of these areas: thought leadership, investment in national service programs, and/or hiring and mentoring alums (click here to see the full list of champions!).
