AmeriCorps Award Matching

Webster participates in the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award Matching Program.

AmeriCorps is part of the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), a federal agency that engages more than 5 million Americans in service to their communities. Under the Segal AmeriCorps Education Award Matching Program, AmeriCorps members are eligible to receive up to $5,920 toward their education from AmeriCorps. Webster University will match that award at $150 per credit hour, at a maximum lifetime cap of $5,400. The match can be applied to qualified programs taught online or at any Webster University location.

The award will be applied for students earning any master's-level degree (except MS in Nurse Anesthesia).
