Using The Education Award
Once the Member has exited the program, he/she will be able to access the Eli Segal AmeriCorps Education Award. For specifics on what the award may be used for, click here.
Members should use the "My AmeriCorps Portal" that will allow access to the Eli Segal AmeriCorps Education Award benefits online. Once registered, Members can create requests online and submit awards to Education or Financial Institutions for processing. Through the online payment system, Members can request AmeriCorps Education Award payments, Interest Accrual payments, and Forbearance on qualified student loans. Additionally, this automated system will let Members view the status of requests, provide up to date information on AmeriCorps Education Award balances, show the history of requests and even let Members update contact information online. Click here for a tutorial on using the My AmeriCorps Portal system to submit payment requests.
If Members are experiencing problems accessing education awards, they should call the National Service Trust at 1-800-942-2677.
