The CCC wants to help members continue their training and education after the Corps. The skills, work experience and education members gain while in the Corps prepare them for their next opportunity. The objective of the CCC’s scholarship programs is to provide money for post-Corps education and training that readies corpsmembers to become productive citizens of California.
Corpsmembers can simultaneously earn two types of scholarships – the CCC Scholarship and the Corps Networks AmeriCorps Education Award. Both scholarships help them to get the training and education they need for the job, career or other endeavor of their choice. These scholarships also provide an incentive and reward to corpsmembers completing one year of service.
