Yes, JVC Northwest does currently offer AmeriCorps Education Awards for 135 of our 150 Jesuit Volunteers who successfully complete the full year of service. The 15 positions that are not AmeriCorps eligible:
- provide service not funded by AmeriCorps, such as ministry or advocacy, or
- are simply not eligible due to the limited amount of funding.
The Corporation for National and Community Service will offer up to $5,730 for a full-time award. Upon successful completion of the service year, the award can be used to pay existing student loans or put towards tuition at an approved U.S. college or graduate school.
See the AmeriCorps FAQ for more information.
