AmeriCorps National Service Network

Urban Teachers is an AmeriCorps Affiliate, which means that teaching residents could be eligible for tuition assistance.

Incoming Urban Teachers participants may receive two Segal AmeriCorps Education Awards to apply toward the Johns Hopkins School of Education tuition or existing student loans. This benefit is worth nearly $12,000 over the first two years of our program. (Note: Award amounts are determined each October.).

Urban Teachers is also an Employer of National Service and partners with AmeriCorps Alums and Service Year.
