Visit 30+ Grad Schools in More than 20 States This September

August 31, 2015

Thinking about grad school after AmeriCorps? Come to AmeriCorps Alums Virtual Grad School Fairs in September (click here to register for our 9/30 fair!) and you could visit more than 30 schools in more than 20 states without leaving the couch. Four of the fair’s schools offer primarily online programs and can be completed no matter where you live. You could also win a $100 gift card to cover the cost of your application fee if you attend (full contest rules here).

More than 50 fields of study will be represented at each fair including education and teaching; public policy, service, and administration; social work; international service and development; and many more. Nearly all of the attending schools also match the AmeriCorps education award and/or provide other financial incentives to AmeriCorps alums. Check out our attending schools for both our September fairs below!

    Just to makesure, there are schools and universities that usually accept the AmeriCorps Aid Award besides the ones listed, right?

    That’s correct.

    I intended to attend this college fair, but ironically enough, my job scheduled me for hours that fall during the time of the event. Is there any chance of a future opportunity?

    We have another fair coming up on December 10, 1-4 p.m. You can sign up here, and we hope you can make it: http://bit.ly/1HLwTb9!
