Additional Information
Data Collection
AmeriCorps Segal Education Award payment data is collected and maintained by the National Service Trust. Payment to eligible institutions is made on behalf of the AmeriCorps member or recipient of a transferred award at their request. AmeriCorps members must use their award within seven years of completing their term of service. Recipients of transferred awards must use the award within ten years from the date the education award was earned.
Limitations
(1) Includes all Segal AmeriCorps Education payment types, including interest payments. (2) Payment subcategories rounded down to hundred thousand place. (3) Total payments calculated as sum of rounded subcategories. (4) Individual count is rounded down to hundreds place and represents distinct count of unique individuals. Individuals expend across State and payment type boundaries. Total count of individuals will not equal sum of sub category values. (5) State derived from higher education and loan holding institution address. State assignments current as of May 3, 2017 and are subject to change in future reporting which could affect State totals. (6) International mailing, Unassigned State, APO, Northern Mariana Islands, Guam, Virgin Islands, and American Samoa were not included in this analysis. (7) Reimbursements and payment cancellation adjustments are distributed evenly amongst payment subcategories pre rounding. (8) $3.2 million in payments made by 2,900 individuals since 1994 were not able to be categorized as either Education Payments or Loan Repayments and are not included in the totals. (9) Payment to eligible institutions is made on behalf of the AmeriCorps member or recipient of transferred awards at their request. AmeriCorps members must use their award within seven years of completing their term of service. Recipients of transferred awards must use the award within ten years from the date the education award was earned. (10) Loan payments are those made to qualified student loans. Qualified student loans is defined as a loan backed by the federal government under Title IV of the Higher Education Act (except PLUS Loans to parents of students) or under Titles VII or VIII of the Public Health Service Act. Under this category, AmeriCorps alumni may also use their Segal AmeriCorps Education Award to repay a student loan that was made to the member by a state agency, including state institutions of higher education. (11) Eligible schools for education payments are higher educational institutions, both domestic and foreign, that currently participate in the Department of Education’s Title IV student aid programs. They are referred to as "Title IV schools." This category includes most post-secondary colleges, universities, and technical schools. The education award can also be used for programs of education, apprenticeship, or on the job training that have been approved for educational benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill and the Post 9/11 G.I. Bill.
