Scholars in Service to Pennsylvania Program

Kutztown has been chosen as one of twenty-seven participating colleges and universities to host the "Scholars in Services to Pennsylvania (SISPA)" program. 

Scholars in Service to Pennsylvania is an AmeriCorps Education Award Only program (Ed Award). This means that participating students enroll as AmeriCorps members on a part-time basis and receive a partial Education Award at the end of their term. Students may choose to do a "quarter-time" or "minimum-time" commitment. A student who completes 450 hours of service over one calendar year can earn an education award of $1,250; a student who completes 300 hours of service over one year can earn a $1,000 education award. Students can do up to 2 terms/years of Scholars in Service regardless of which level of commitment they make. The award can be used to pay for any legitimate educational expense at their current undergraduate institution or to pay for future educational expenses, as well as to re-pay student loans.
