Illinois Campus Compact: Service Education Award Opportunity

Selected students have one year (until December 31, 2019) to serve at least 300 hours building capacity for campus and community partnerships. Once service hours are completed the student will receive a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award!

  • If the student completes 300 volunteer hours they will receive a $1,252.91 education award.

  • If the student completes 450 volunteer hours they will receive a $1,566.14 education award.

  • The education award can be applied toward education expenses at your current or future (ex: graduate school) college location. 

This program rewards students for being civically engaged and giving back to their community. The majority of the service must be direct involvement in a volunteer capacity. Some training and philanthropy work can be considered as well as service that is integrated as part of a credit-bearing course. The service must be completed in Illinois. Applicants must be selected while enrolled at their respective college. 

This program, ILCC Service Corps, is open to 30 college students. If you or someone you know is interested in this program please direct them to apply through AmeriCorps at this site. Those interested are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
