    The Scholarships360 Research Team reviews all scholarships individually and strives to exclude any scholarship where any of the below applies:

    • The scholarship provider’s privacy policy allows for the misuse of student data
    • The scholarship requires paid membership in an organization (with certain exceptions for reputable trade organizations and others)
    • Student are required to sign up for a site or service to apply*
    • The scholarship seems primarily used for lead generation** or idea harvesting purposes***
    • The scholarship website has many grammatical errors and/or advertisements
    • The scholarship or scholarship providing organization seem untrustworthy
    • There is no evidence the scholarship was previously awarded
    • The scholarship has not been awarded in the past 12 months
    • There is no available contact information

    If you believe a scholarship has been published in error, please reach out to [email protected] and we’ll take a look!

    * There are certain exceptions to this, for example if the sponsoring organization is a major corporation or nonprofit with its own scholarship application system.
    ** Lead generation scholarships will require students to sign up for an app or website and require minimal (if any) application requirements.
    ***Idea harvesting scholarships will require students to submit blog posts or other materials that companies may use for marketing purposes.

    Scholarship Overview

    Are you a member of AmeriCorps, have finished your term service, and are looking for a scholarship opportunity? If so, you might be interested in the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award! The program is open to AmeriCorps members who have completed an AmeriCorps service term within a 12-month period in either AmeriCorps NCCC, AmeriCorps State and National, or AmeriCorps VISTA. Applicants must also be enrolled in any higher education institution that participates in the Department of Education’s Title IV student aid program. 

    AmeriCorps is the national service program that offers the scholarship. The organization looks to improve lives, strengthen communities, and foster civic engagement through service and volunteering. Recipients can use the award to repay qualified student loans and current educational expenses at postsecondary institutions and training programs. The award amount is equivalent to the maximum value of the Pell Grant and is based on the term of service completed, meaning it may change year-to-year and will vary by person. If you are a member of AmeriCorps and have completed your term of service to pursue post-secondary education, we encourage you to apply!
