Student Leaders In Service
Student Leaders in Service is an AmeriCorps Education Award Only program which engages college students as part-time AmeriCorps members. AmeriCorps is a network of local, state, and national service programs that connects more than 70,000 Americans each year in intensive service to meet our country’s critical needs in education, public safety, health, and the environment.
AmeriCorps Education Award Only programs are designed to add value to on-going service initiatives through the Education Award and through additional support and training. The program expands opportunities for people to serve and brings new communities and sponsors together as partners in service. The Student Leaders in Service is ideal for higher education institutions that already sponsor community service efforts and have the capacity to recruit, train, supervise and generally support these leaders in service.
Student participants receive the following Education Award for the fulfilling their corresponding service hour commitment over the course of one calendar year. Education awards can be used to repay qualified student loans and to pay all or part of the cost of attending a qualified institution of higher education.
300 hr. commitment fulfilled = $1,000.00
450 hr. commitment fulfilled = $1,250.00
675 hr. commitment fulfilled = $1,800.00
900 hr. commitment fulfilled = $2,362.50
