Adler University (Chicago and Online campuses) would like to recognize those who have served the community through the AmeriCorps programs in the following ways:

Adler University will waive the application fee for current AmeriCorps members and alumni. Students should contact the Office of Admissions to get their application fee waived and provide the appropriate verification.

The University will provide newly admitted student to any of our Chicago campus or online programs a 50% tuition scholarship for AmeriCorps Alumni who has served no less than 1 year completing 1700hrs and awarded the maximum Segal Award. Upon admission to Adler University, the student scholarship will be applied across the first year of their program of study. Students should submit a completed Adler University application for admission and verification of an AmeriCorps Educational Award.  Students may apply for fall admission prior to completing their AmeriCorps service, and awards will be matched upon receipt of the AmeriCorps voucher. In this case, students should submit a letter from a program supervisor.  Eligible candidates will not receive additional merit funding if award the AmeriCorps scholarship. However, additional external scholarships may be applied towards tuition and fees including the Segal award.

Academically competitive applicants will be automatically considered for additional scholarships through the Adler University if you are not eligible for the 50% scholarship.
