AmeriCorps

SIT Graduate Institute acknowledges the value of service and is proud to be a member of the Segal Education Award Matching Program and a School of National Service, offering benefits and incentives to AmeriCorps members and alumni. This partnership strives to bring driven and civic-minded individuals to SIT’s master’s degree programs.

Benefit

  • AmeriCorps alumni who have completed their service (10 to 12 months) and are accepted into one of SIT’s master’s degree programs are eligible for a competitively awarded $5,000 scholarship. The award is based on the type of work completed during service and the candidate’s experience before and after working with AmeriCorps.
