Today’s sponsored blog is written by Brian Scott, the Associate Director of Admission at Marist College. Marist offers a tuition discount of 25% to help defray educational costs to AmeriCorps employees and alumni who are 22 years of age or older, and who have been accepted into an adult undergraduate or graduate program at the college.

At Marist College, everyone makes a difference. You served in AmeriCorps because you also believed that each person has the capacity to initiate positive change. When you come to Marist, you become part of an extraordinary legacy that has produced leaders in virtually every field, and totals just over 35,000 alumni around the globe.

Nan PriestNan Priest, the Chief Development Officer of The ARC of Ulster-Greene and a 2012 MPA graduate, had this to say, “Marist provided me with the chance to meet people who were working in a variety of industries. The experiences of my classmates helped to enrich the program and all that I learned from it. The support and guidance provided by the faculty was exceptional.

We recognize at Marist College that AmeriCorps alumni have the potential to continue leading after service. As a way of saying “thank you for serving,” we offer a tuition discount of 25% off our non-discounted graduate and adult undergraduate programs to AmeriCorps members and their immediate adult family members aged 22 and older to help defray educational costs.

We invite you to continue developing the skills you gained through AmeriCorps at Marist. Students educated within the Marist philosophy become leaders in modeling behaviors and actions that show their commitment to human rights, authentic internationality, and skill in building mutually supportive collaborations in their workplaces, civic organizations, neighborhoods, and wherever they may travel. Marist is dedicated to helping students develop the intellect and character required for enlightened, ethical, and productive lives in our 21st century global community.

Pari ForoodPari Forood, the Executive Director of Miles of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation and a 2015 MPA graduate, had this to say of her experience, “My knowledge of my field has increased tenfold: I am a better strategic thinker; I have a better overall appreciation for the process of creating, implementing and evaluating programming.”
