Hillary Clinton's policies onEducation

Expand AmeriCorps

Clinton believes that if you serve your country through national and community service, you should also be awarded with educational benefits. Today, there are 75,000 people who participate in AmeriCorps by serving in communities across the country to address pressing problems through nonprofits, schools, public agencies, and community and faith-based group.

Clinton's New College Compact will expand AmeriCorps from 75,000 to 250,000 members. And it will build on the current AmeriCorps Segal education award by partnering with state and university leaders to enable volunteers who complete two years of community service and one year in a public service job to attend an in-state public college or university without having to take out loans for any expenses or to have their loans forgiven upon completion of their service commitment.
