Yes, JVC Northwest does currently offer AmeriCorps Education Awards to most of our Jesuit Volunteers who successfully complete the full year of service. The few 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.
For the 2020-21 program year, the Corporation for National and Community Service will offer up to $6,195 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.
