We welcome former AmeriCorps Members to our Applied Community & Economic Development (ACED) Fellows Program. Service with AmeriCorps counts toward the requirement to have at least one year (1,700 hours) of full-time experience in community development or social services (as either a paid professional or a volunteer) or the equivalent prior to the start of classes. The ACED Fellows Program matches the AmeriCorps education award by providing an assistantship, full two-year tuition waiver, and paid 11-month internship.
We have a partnership that allows some of our current students to serve as AmeriCorps Members during their year on campus and/or their internship placement. Our AmeriCorps Members have received education awards totaling over $213,000.
