A new online resource is available to help AmeriCorps Alums and members form a strategy around the Education Award. The resource focuses on combining service with going to school and/or repaying loans, as well as national service-specific info on the Public Service Loan Forgiveness and Income-Based Repayment student loan relief programs. Animated stories featuring characters from various avenues of service are used to illustrate key points. The content also reflects changes that affect members through the Serve America Act, Rulemaking, and the new student loan legislation.
