What are the benefits of participating in an AmeriCorps program like Teach For America?
Teach For America is currently a member of AmeriCorps, the national service network. Through this relationship, our corps members are AmeriCorps members and are eligible to receive loan forbearance and interest payments on qualified student loans during their two years of service. Additionally, those who have not previously received AmeriCorps awards may receive an education award of $5,815 at the end of each year of service, which may be used toward future educational expenses, such as their certifications or master’s courses or to repay qualified student loans, although this award is not guaranteed.
