About AmeriCorps Fellowships

AmeriCorps Fellows are placed in nonprofit and educational organizations to build effective, sustainable volunteer programs through the Volunteer Infrastructure Project (VIP).  VIP Fellows are trained to support their assigned partner site by systematically increasing their capacity to recruit, train, support, utilize and recognize volunteers. 

Benefits include:

  • Living allowance (up to $16,000)
  • Healthcare benefits
  • Childcare subsidy (if eligible)
  • Student loan deferment
  • Segal Education Award upon successful completion of service term
