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 $22,000)
  • Education Award upon successful completion of service term (up to $10,000), applicable towards student loan deferment
  • Professional development training and opportunities

  • Professional Development: Through ongoing training and experiential learning opportunities, AmeriCorps Fellows gain valuable work skills, leadership development and a pathway to future opportunities.
  • Connection: As part of an AmeriCorps cohort you will interact, learn and grow with a team of AmeriCorps Fellows.  Engage and build your network with corporate partners and community leaders.
