Education Stipend for 300 hours of Volunteer Time: Do you qualify?

New York Campus Compact is excited to announce a new student service program opportunity!

Through a grant from the Corporation for National and Community Service
and the New York State Commission on National and Community Service,
NYCC has received additional AmeriCorps Education Award Program (EAP)
funding for the 2011-2012 program year. EAP fosters civic engagement
among higher education students, promotes the National Service movement,
and encourages positive relationships between campuses and communities.
The program meets critical community needs by engaging college students
in service as part-time AmeriCorps members, and fostering within them
an ethic of civic responsibility.

Upon successful completion of 300 hours of service in a calendar year,
students are eligible to receive a $1,175 Education Award to be applied
toward outstanding federal student loans or the cost of attendance at a
college or university. With rising tuition costs the education award
earned upon successful completion of the program helps make service a
viable opportunity for students with financial need.

Please review the attached Request for Proposals and NYCC's website for more information on this program opportunity.

** All proposals are to be submitted electronically (with original signatures) by 5pm on Friday, November 18th, 2011.**

PLEASE CONTACT ABRADY@STLAWU.EDU IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS OPPORTUNITY.
