Corpsmembers can earn $2,000 during their first and second years in the CCC, for a total of up to $4,000. This money is separate from paychecks, and can only be used toward furthering education or training.
This scholarship may be used to pay for the cost of attending college or technical training, and can be used for more than tuition and books. Corpsmembers and alumni can use scholarships to pay for any items included in “cost of attendance” (as defined by the Department of Education). Each school’s financial aid office can provide details on the cost of attendance, which may include housing, transportation and other costs.
