The Center for Service in Action is delighted to announce the AmeriCorps College Fellowship program, or "College Corps."  This fellowship aims to provide 6,500 college students statewide with service-learning opportunities over the span of one academic year to tackle statewide challenges in climate action, K-12 education, and food insecurity.  There will be two cohorts over two academic years:  first cohort will run during the 2022-23 academic year, and the second cohort will run during the 2023-24 academic year.  This application is for the 2022-23 academic year only.

The Coastal California Civic Leadership Consortium consists of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CSU Long Beach, Cuesta College, and Allan Hancock College.  We are looking to recruit 315 students in total for this consortium of schools.  Fellows will receive a stipend while serving up to $7,000, and an ending educational award (if completed in good standing) of an additional $3,000.
