AmeriCorps + Bachelors Degree with Scholarship Stipend

TechMission Corps provides a partnership with City Vision College where AmeriCorps members may work toward their Bachelor's degree through City Vision College during their AmeriCorps service period. Any TechMission Corps member that does not have a Bachelor's is required to either be enrolled in a Bachelor's program or working toward their GED. The TechMission Corps member may be enrolled in any accredited school, although City Vision College provides additional discounts and benefits to TechMission Corps members.  These include the following:

  • Up to six hours of credit for your AmeriCorps service
  • Scholarship stipend (see description below)
  • Ability to take courses online while active in service
  • Delayed payment of tuition until AmeriCorps educational award is received
  • Students qualifying for a Pell grant or other federal financial aid will receive cash payment of the full amount to cover living expenses
