In recognition of their invaluable service and commitment to positive impact in our communities, Seattle University offers the following benefits for AmeriCorps/PeaceCorps alums.
Applicants to Seattle University Graduate Programs are eligible to apply for the AmeriCorps/PeaceCorps 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/PeaceCorps term of service by the time of enrollment in their graduate program.
AmeriCorps/PeaceCorps Alumni Scholarship award decisions will be made after admissions decisions. For scholarship applications submitted by April 30, 2021, Seattle University will notify applicants of scholarship decisions by June 1. For applications submitted after April 30, Seattle University will notify applicants of scholarship decisions made on a case-by-case basis depending on remaining funds.
In addition, AmeriCorps alums who complete an application for the Master of Nonprofit Leadership 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.
Students are strongly encouraged to explore other financial opportunities by contacting Seattle University’s Office of Student Financial Services at (206) 220-8020 or http://www.seattleu.edu/sfs/.
