Applicants to Seattle University’s Master of Public Administration and Master of Nonprofit Leadership programs are eligible to apply for the AmeriCorps Alumni Scholarship. Recipients of the scholarship receive a total award of $3,000 toward tuition, which is distributed over the first two years of the student's academic program. Eligible applicants must have successfully completed (or will have completed) an AmeriCorps term of service by the time of enrollment in their graduate program. Six new scholarships are awarded annually.
AmeriCorps alums who complete an application for any Seattle University graduate program may request an application fee waiver. In the “Fee Payment” section of their online application, applicants should indicate they are an AmeriCorps alum in order to receive the fee waiver.
