How an AmeriCorps Alum Becomes a Grad Student

November 18, 2015

Thanks to Schoolhouse Rock, most of us know how a bill become a law (or at least the short, ideal path a bill might take). But, do you know the clearest path to grad school for an AmeriCorps alum who’s already earned an undergraduate degree?

AmeriCorps Alums’ recent survey of alumni showed that two out of three alums wants to pursue additional higher education after AmeriCorps, but only one in three knows how to finance these degrees. If you’re thinking about grad school after serving, check out our 7-step path below to finding the right school for you.

Also, be sure to sign up for the AmeriCorps Alums Virtual Grad School Fair on May 19, 12-3 p.m. EDT. Schools from across the country will be recruiting at our fair and offer programs in education, international studies, social work, public policy, business, and more. Most schools also match the AmeriCorps education award or provide additional benefits to alums. Don’t miss a chance to talk one-on-one with recruiters who help make enrollment decisions. RSVP for the fair today!
