AmeriCorps Education Benefits

Princeton welcomes talented students whose commitment to service and leadership echoes our own.

Princeton is proud to partner with AmeriCorps as a School of National Service. We find continued inspiration in welcoming AmeriCorps alumni to our campus each year. Not only do they offer a perspective on the broader world, they bring meaningful passion for service and leadership experience aligned with our institutional values. 

Student Benefits

In recognition of AmeriCorps alumni and their demonstrated civic engagement and service, we offer:

  • Application fee waivers: You will have an opportunity to indicate your service during the application process, and the application fee will be waived.
  • Segal AmeriCorps Education Award: The Graduate School coordinates financial support packages to enable students to use the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award to meet individual educational expenses. Enrolled students should submit an External Fellowship Form to request these funds. In turn, our team will respond to the award enrollment verification request from AmeriCorps.
